Summer Holiday Journalling

Free Printable Summer Holiday and Vacation Journal Pages

We are packing our bags, slapping on our hats and sunscreen, gathering our tickets to head off on summer holidays. Please, please, please give us some sunshine, we really need it.

I decided to put together some quick Summer Holiday/Vacation Journal Pages for the children to complete. They are relatively simple in nature as I didn't want to dictate to them what information to include. I want their memories to be theirs, not what I have asked them to remember.

I have included a small amount of clipart and will also take along some stickers that they can decorate the Summer Holiday/Vacation Journal Pages with.

These will be great for an end of day activity or if some quiet time is needed or dare I even mention it, if we do get rain aahhh!!!

Each page is a double, so there is enough in this file for Two Printable Summer Holiday/Vacation Journals.

There are a couple of pages to complete during the days before we leave, the Cover Page, In My Suitcase I Packed, Send Postcards To and On Holidays I Would Like To (in fact that one might be good to do at the airport whilst we are hanging around waiting to board the plane)

Then there are a few variations on Things We Did Today pages, plus a page to draw a Map of the Holiday place, since my kids love to create maps. I will also take colours and maybe even some watercolours so they can draw a Holiday Picture or two.

I want to allow the children to choose how much or how little writing they do in their journals so the main pages are blank, but I have included some lined writing sheets (in full page and half page sizes) that can be glued to the main pages if the children wish to write on them.

I've printed the journal pages on slightly heavier card, have copies of the clip art ready to go, stickers, glue, pencils and any other smaller supplies they might need all packed and ready to take with us.
