Making a creative journal for a friend’s birthday

My friend showed me her Wreck It Journal and I was inspired to make her my own journal with prompts that resonate with me.

She’s like my adopted little sister and I’ll be giving this to her for her 14th birthday. I hope for the journal to not just be a fun book of activities but a keepsake full of special moments and memories.

So it includes prompts like getting letters from friends and family, writing down favourite quotes/lyrics/scriptures, and answering questions about life.

It incorporates self-discovery and self-expression with record-keeping.

Plus there are lots of random prompts like:

  • Go for a walk and find a feather/flower/leaf to stick in the journal
  • Take a selfie and stick it in the journal
  • Draw a self-portrait
  • Write a bucket list
  • Spray perfume on a page
  • Test all your nail polishes on a page
  • Cover a page in glitter
  • Draw a timeline of your life
  • Trace your footprint

Next week I’ll print the book and have it spiral bound ready to give to her on her birthday.

Any suggestions for prompts I could use?
