The Power of A Kid’s Journal

Journaling is a fantastic bucket emptier and so a fabulous activity for a highly sensitive child to take up. Getting thoughts, ideas, stories and experiences on paper is a great way to help children calm their minds (and bodies!) AND makes for a wonderful time capsule!

My eldest son (nine years old) has just started filling his Gadanke “Time Capsule: A seriously awesome kid’s journal” with his thoughts and drawings. This new Gadanke journal is such fun – I was mesmerised watching him draw himself as a pirate! He’s still busy thinking about what his pirate name should be….

And the most wonderful thing of all is that within twenty minutes of filling in a few pages of his journal his bucket was empty, he was smiling from ear to ear, and we had a calm boy ready for his bed. That’s the power of a journal.

Time Capsule - A Gadanke Kids JournalBut there’s a little more to these kids’ journals. You can help get one of these awesome journals to a child who has been displaced from their home because of domestic violence. You can Give a Story and purchase a Time Capsule journal with a 50% discount and Gadanke will deliver it to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence to give to a child on your behalf. That’s the power of a kid’s journal!

(For those of you  not in the USA you can also purchase one of these awesome journals from Amazon.co.uk.)
