Making Lists,Conversation Starters,& Creating Memories with Your Children

Writing is a wonderful way to connect with your children.  I found that my three enjoy comparing favorite activities, movies, and songs that I liked at their ages.  Here is one way to start your own list making activity.  You can design your own format.  It's never too late to start your own family journal project. 

List of Family Members
Child's Name:
Mom:
Dad:
Grandparents

Ask each one to list...
Favorite Outdoor Activities at age ____

Favorite Indoor Activities

Favorite Board Games

Favorite Songs

Favorite Movies

You can decide how you want to record these moments. 
1. A Family Journal or Binder where you can add pages.
2. Each child can have an Individual Journal .
3. Produce your own Video Journal.

Whatever your choice, have fun with this project.  Hopefully you enjoy the conversations that arise and create lasting memories with your children.  Lists are great because they can be short and simple.  Have a wonderful week everyone!
