New Season Journal

New Season Journal craft

Emerging writers are eager to record their experiences in words and pictures. A seasonal journal captures the excitement of changing weather patterns and holidays.

    Stack several sheets of paper together with construction paper for front and back covers. Staple pages together or punch holes and tie with colored yarn.

  • 2.

    Write a title on the cover with Crayola® Fine Line Markers. Design around the title using colorful repeated patterns of seasonal themes, such as springtime flowers, summer beach balls, fall fruits and vegetables, or winter mittens. Draw your design pattern in layers, one outside the other.

    Use markers to write about your experiences in your journal. Draw pictures of seasonal changes you see outside and describe important days. Attach photographs with a Crayola® Glue Stick and write about your memories of the scene.

    Continue your theme from the front cover on the journal pages. Choose a picture to draw in colorful repeated patterns around the margins of each page. Select an item to match each page's topic.
