kids’ creativity: summer journaling (+ a giveaway!)

*the below features a giveaway of some of my fave things for kids for summer. this giveaway and post are not sponsored by any retailer or partner, and the opinions below are my own! 

i love keeping an eye out for the latest + greatest thing that i can try with the boys, to try and encourage their creative + artistic side of the brain. i will say both of my boys do love having a pad of plain paper + crayons at the ready and easily within their reach, but they also equally love their cars + basketball. but whenever i see a way to encourage that little bit of creativity, i try to help it grow a bit!

little mr. re-nest #1’s birthday was in april, and he is always asking me for my canvases to make his michaels. for as long as i can remember, my oldest loves to make books. and, it generally means a lot of loose pages floating around. these blank hardcover books were like angels singing….not only to keep things neat and orderly, but also to encourage his creativity. so, i decided to get him his own little art kit….filled with canvases, paint, brushes, crafty stuff, glue, and more….including these fantastic hardcover blank books from

he was all about getting started on a book, but what to write about?

well….we just happen to have a disney trip coming up. and, what better way to get even more amped than to start a disney journal??

we got started picking out the rides we must ride at the magic kingdom + at hollywood studios, and made a list in the journal. then, we have lots of space to take the journal along with us, so he can write about every day of our vacation! (side note: i love, love, love that in first grade, his class has been journaling every day of the year. so, this disney journal just helps keep that trend going, encouraging his creativity, and lets him practice his writing skills!)
