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.

That’s the power of a kid’s journal!
