This cute and crafty keepsake is perfect for storing summer plans and memories!

This activity is appropriate for:
1st - 5th grade / 6 - 10 years

You will need:

Before you begin:

Print enough copies of the “Summer Fun Journal” cover art for each student. For younger students, you may want to precut the cover art to size.


  1. Give each student a Classic Primary Composition Book, a copy of the Summer Fun Journal cover art and some markers or crayons.
  2. Instruct students to write their names on the blank line and color the cover art. Then have them cut it out and glue or tape it anywhere on the covers of their journals.
  3. Invite students to decorate the remainder of the cover with strips of craft tape in a variety of colors and patterns.
  4. Finally, encourage students to record their summer plans, thoughts and memories in their journals through pictures and narratives!
