The start of the school year means busy schedules with homework and extra curricular activities filling the calendar spots. Getting the kids to reflect on their day is important too and a great opportunity to take to a journal.

On my latest Melissa & Doug blog post I talk about the benefits journal writing can offer kids. Did you ever keep a journal when you were little? As routines are just being established, now is the perfect time to explore this form of introspect and memory keeping. Not sure if this is something for your kids, check out my post for the many benefits and some ideas on incorporating journal writing into your child’s day.
