Today I want to offer you a free printable travel journal for kids. It’s a one page (front and back) travel-based prompt that you can print for your next trip. There’s room for elaborate writing or drawing, their choice. Because it’s only one page, and because of the nature of the prompts, you can print one for every day of a trip or for the whole trip. It works great with staycations, vacations and playcations!
What’s the printable travel journal for kids all about?
Well, I strongly feel that including kids in all parts of the travel process benefits everyone involved. This printable page is a simple way to get kids thinking about their vacation, while on vacation! They can even do it afterwards. The best part is the memories it preserves – in their own handwriting. I think filling this out for several trips would be fun. Just print one (or more) when you need them. Then you’ll have a record of their thoughts and feeling about family vacations. Not to mention, I’m sure they’ll enjoy looking at it once they are older.
This download includes the two pages above (which can be printed front to back), as well as a list of suggestions for use.
Can I see it in action?
Of course. Andrea over at Passports and Pushchairs recently went on a family trip to the Pacific Northwest. (If you want some tips for your own family’s trip to Seattle, go ahead and check out her posts.)
She was kind enough to try the travel journal with her 5-year-old son, F. She also sent pictures!
Thank you Andrea and thank you F for taking the time to test it out and send me pictures.
