    I love these when my oldest daughter turned 5 I have a clam bake burning cermony of all 187 of my journals with all my gals from back in the day I have kept a journal since I was 8 and still do to this day. P.s those 187 were from 8th grade to sr in college kept all the rest if Austyn got a hold of those I would be a walking hyperocirate

    I had one made for niece (10) who is the writer in the family. I took several pictures of her and used it for the cover, she loved it. I also bought her a pretty pen to complete the present.

    My oldest is 7 and she journals our trips and fun weekend adventures that’s about it for now but I keep it all!

    I always kept a journal growing up. I still do. I passed it on to my children. My daughter, who is 12, writes quotes, about her day, about things going on, a bucket list of things she would like to do someday, and posts pictures and tickets in there. One of my sons, he hates to write. So we bought a big drawing book. He draws lots of pictures and actually writes stories about his pictures in there. Hahaha….he is writing. It’s a joy to look back through them as the kids get older and see the things that mattered to them. My daughter loves to look back at her journals through the past eight years, especially the one were she drew lots of pictures that I have to explain what it is that she drew. I will be putting them in her hope chest for when she graduates and is on her own. :)

    Love these! My daughter is 9 and I have been begging her to start journaling to capture this amazing time in her life…maybe one of these journals will help inspire her.
