Ask Design Mom Week — Journals

I'm looking for a journal that's appropriate for kids. Any good ideas? Thanks. — Kathryn

Great question.
The favorite kids journal at our house is called This Is Me. It's full of great prompter questions. Lots of space for drawings or pasting in ticket stubs. And it has a handy little pocket at the back for tucking away keepsakes.

Also, I haven't tried these myself, but I think the Between You & Me journals look good too. Inside each are fun, non-sappy, sometimes humorous questions. Give them to the people you love and they are returned with handwritten responses.

Want more ideas? One of my recent guest moms wrote a terrific round-up of all sorts of journals.

Dear Readers, do your kids have a favorite journal?

Well, there are no prompter questions or cute things inside, but I have made personalized journals out of composition books for my nephews and niece (ages 12-4) and have even let the kids make their own. It's an inexpensive solution (comp book $1, a couple sheets of scrapbook paper or magazine clippings and Mod Podge). My oldest nephew used his for personal essays and my youngest niece used hers to draw pictures.

If you do want things throughout the pages, you can always add quote stickers or handwritten questions or phrases and a ribbon on the binding for a bookmark.

I really like those Between Me And You journals too. They're a really easy way for my grandmother to record her memories. I got several more as stocking stuffers and look forward to getting them back.
