The first few pages of the Daisy Doodles Journal contains a step-by-step guide to walk your child through the basics of journaling. There are also blank pre-printed weekly and daily spreads so they can get to grips with the layouts before creating their own.
Also, our sister-site for adults – Oops a Daisy – has a detailed introduction to bullet journaling for adults, which your child may find useful if they are older, but you may want to read this information yourself in order to help your child with journaling. Think about what your child will find the most useful and interesting – If some elements are too complicated, then just leave them out, there are no strict rules. If your child prefers drawing to writing, or vice versa, then encourage them to do whatever they find fun!
How can journaling help my child?
As with adults, journaling has many benefits such as developing creativity, improving organisation, and being more aware of emotions, as well as being a fun non-screen activity. We focus all of the Daisy Doodles products and activities around six concepts:
Thinking, Feeling, Imagining, Creating, Planning and Remembering
Children are encouraged to use their journals in these different ways by by collecting Stickerdoodles.
What age is the Daisy Doodles range aimed at?
There is no exact age range for the Daisy Doodles products, but we have found the minimum age to be around six, with the upper end somewhere from early teens to young adults. (Some grown-ups have even been known to buy things for themselves…) You know your child best, so if your younger child is showing a keen interest, then there’s no reason they can’t get involved!
What if I have more than one child?
The majority of Daisy Doodles products are available to buy individually, so you can pick and choose what you want your children to share.
What do I need to get my child started with journaling?
All you really need to start journaling is a journal and a pen or pencil, but there are many things, such as stencils, washi tape, and stickers, which make it easier and more fun, especially for kids.
Our journals have been designed with young people in mind – The B5 size is slightly larger than A5 so they have more room to experiment, and the spiral binding means they lay perfectly flat for easier writing and drawing.
