When I was little I used to always make a summer diary and I’ve just got them all out of the attic! The things I used say! LOL. Anyway I thought that this might be a good thing to do with my eldest son, 6.  I only made a simple version as we didn’t have much time. I got 12 pieces of plain white A4 paper and folded them in half to make a book, and hole punched them and fastened together with some ribbon. On the first page we put things like best friend is.., favourite t.v programme, hobbies etc. then on each double page I made it so that there was space to write 4 days, and I did this on the next double page too, then after every 8 days I made a summery. I have mostly been doing.., mostly been eating… mostly been reading… mostly been playing with… etc. Best thing that happened. And on the last few pages of the diary I leave room for notes, pictures, photos, and of course space to write about the best day ever of the summer holidays!!

  1. how fun! Summer is all but over here but I will have to do it next year with my oldest who will be 6 by then. It should be a great memento to save for her later! That is so cool that you kept all of yours.

    would love to have you link this up to the Sunday Showcase – http://momto2poshlildivas.blogspot.com/2011/08/sunday-showcase-81411-link-up-share.html it’s a weekly child centered linky party I co-host on my blog (runs Sat night thru Thurs.)

  2. I do something similar but I do it with cards and let them write in what we already have planned, add some blank cards for things we’d like to do but don’t know when we are doing it yet and it also becomes a countdown to the end of summer to give them an idea of when summer will end.

  3. Such a good idea. An online diary can easily be made too as it would be easy to add photos, videos and information from the websites of places visited. Converted into a slide show it would be perfect entertainment for a chilly winter evening.
