Kids’ travel diaries to keep the memories

To gather the thoughts before, under and after a trip we recommend introducing a Travel diary to your kids. This can be used as early as 4-5 years old since a drawing can be as informative as a long text.   Before our last summer vacation, many Saturday mornings was filled by looking for pictures on the internet, print them, draw them and cut & glue them into the book.  During the vacation, the kids where tired after long days filled with activities and in the evening they often found it calming to sit down and draw/write in their little books.

We expected the kids to forget about the books after returning home, but they have been very proud of their work (and they should be) and have brought the diaries with them to show to both their grandparents and friends at school/ daycare.

Some ideas:

  • Draw the best part of the day
  • Write about what we have done today
  • Find a postcard and stick in the book
  • Draw the food/ice-cream/cookie/fruit you had earlier today
  • Include tickets/receipts from attractions/restaurants
  • Write a wish list for tomorrow

Since pictures can say more than thousand words, we will keep this blog post short and sweet and instead show you some photos for inspiration:

3 Kids Travel tips: To make the books as personal as possible we suggest to buy different styles to each of them. Are you afraid this will start an argument between them? Wrap the books and use a random method to decide who get which book.
