RELEASE DATE: THURSDAY, AUGUST 5, 2021
I’m excited to announce the launch of the TRAVEL 50 STATES JOURNAL for Kids on Thursday, August 5th, 2021!!
This cute, interactive journal for ages 5+ was inspired by my own family’s travels across the United States. As a passionate educator and home school mom, I am always seeking out resources to engage and interest children while traveling! The Travel 50 States Journal for Kids offers many opportunities to color, draw, and write about their travel experiences. My hope is to inspire a new generation of travelers!
Here is a little sneak peak of the layout and what to expect:
Sometimes the hardest part about capturing your memories is a looming blank space! I’ve included a page with seventeen journal prompt questions for encouragement and inspiration.
ALL ABOUT ME:
These pages are designed for writing OR drawing. Prompts for filling in name, home state, traveling companions, traveling hopes and aspirations.
UNITED STATES CHECKLIST:
A US map and checklist is included, which can be colored in on both the map, and the star next to each state.
FAMOUS UNITED STATES LANDMARKS:
Color or circle all the landmarks that have been visited.
NATIONAL PARKS AND JUNIOR RANGER CHECKLIST:
A checklist of the major National Parks is included, with options to color in a TREE for those visited, and a BADGE for those where Junior Ranger badges were earned. (Did you know that you and your children can earn Ranger badges from most National and State Parks, National Monuments, and National Forests? Find out more HERE.)
TWO-PAGE LAYOUT PER STATE:
There’s a lot of information packed into each state page!
Name of the state, state outline that can be colored, state flag, state rating 1-5 stars, dates of visit, state number. (Is this the 2nd/50 states that you’ve visited, or the 42nd?). Accommodations, methods of travels, landscapes observed, traveling companions, and a weather wheel is included. Boxes to write or draw about a favorite meal, something funny that happened, a favorite attraction, and words to describe feelings on this particular trip. Finally, a map to draw or color the route from the home state to the visited state.
One last trip destination that we couldn’t leave out – our nation’s Capital city!
THINGS I WANT TO REMEMBER:
Two extra pages to capture in words or drawings, those extra special memories.
CREATE YOUR OWN LOG:
Every traveler has a list of favorite activities that they love to do on the road, and wants a place to keep track of them! From hiking to biking to camping to skiing to museums to bird-watching to bungee-jumping , these blank LOGS allow any tracking that suits your young traveler.
LINED AND UNLINED PAGES:
Just some extra space to write or draw!
Journals are 6 x 9, the perfect size to carry with you in your backpack or suitcase.
There are 3 options for you! PAPERBACK, and COIL BOUND. Amazon only offers the paperback option, so I’ve also included the option to purchase coil bound through Lulu. com!
