Summer Journal for the Little Ones

Have you seen the movie Up?  
I think it's just one of the sweetest movies.  
In some ways it reminds me of the way I remember my mom's parents together. 

Remember that Adventure Book they had in the movie?  
I made my own version for the ladybug to record her own summer adventures.

I alternated blank pages with pre-k lined pages.  

On the blank side she'll draw a picture of our adventure that day.  
On the lined side she'll write about it.

There's a little pocket in the front cover for her little "treasures."

I figured this would be a fun way for her to keep practice writing during the summer. 
So far it's been a hit with her.  She likes having a place for her "adventures."

You could do this with any notebook on hand.  
Or you can find the adventure book in my shop here.
