A couple of months ago while reading one of my favourite blogs. I was inspired by this lovely new tradition of a Collective Family Journal. As I told the children about it they were inspired as well and wanted to start one of our own.
While our children are creative, they are not nearly as artistic as Kimberlee's children.
This is one of Moran's drawings - she is getting so much better at this now.
I have set this up in a place in the kitchen with a glass of coloured pencils and odds and ends. As the mood strikesthem, as they walk by, someone will write a favourite quote, a snippet of a song or something they have been talking about.
Also feast days are recorded as well as some doodling and fine drawings and water colours.
I love seeing what inspires the children at the moment and have even added little tidbits myself. I am so not an artist!
Thank you Kimberlee and family for the creative spark and sharing it with us.
I am sure we will look back with fond memories at this special gift.
I did have other copies as well with more detailed drawings but can't seem to find them on the computer file!
