Getting Kids Writing Awesome Adventure Travel Journals 8


We’ve loved our family holidays to Bali.  My son is now eight years old, I have been trying to encourage him to write a travel journal.  Though for him,  after the first day away the thought of sitting down to write for half an hour about what he has seen and experienced is just too much.  After all the resort pool is beckoning.

However, completing activity books whilst sitting in restaurants is another thing.  So, I was quite excited to discover a new series of travel journals for kids, My Awesome Adventure Travel Journals.  Currently, there are two available.  The My Awesome Bali Adventure and the My Awesome Sydney Adventure.

The My Awesome Adventure Travel Journals

Eliza McCann wrote the first Awesome Adventure Journal when she was living in Bali with two young children.  She noticed so many kids on a family holiday to Bali staring into an iPad.  We’ve all been guilty of using electronics to help keep the peace as trying to ask your young primary school child to write a tradition travel journal often results in many refusals.

However, it’s nice for kids to have a hard copy source of travel memories.  The Awesome Adventure Travel Journals offer a fun way to record what they discover in the world around them.  They can complete details about their flights, getting to their hotel, describe different sights, sounds, and smells.  They can tick off various animals that they encounter and food that they taste.

Yet the spiral bound travel journal is not just about filling in the blanks.  There are maps, word sleuths, mazes, crosswords, de-coding, colouring and pictures to draw on the art quality paper that prevents felt pens from bleeding through the paper.

If at the end you are struggling to complete the questions, the answers are at the back of the book.

What I like is although author Eliza McCann created these books primarily as a kids travel journal to be used on a family holiday to Sydney or Bali, is that they can also be used as a fun educational activity book for the school holidays.
