    Thank you! These writing prompts are going to be perfect for our summer bullet journals to keep the kids practicing their writing!!!

      Bullet journals for kids? What a fantastic idea, Lindsey!

      • Lindsey

        Yes I got each kid a journal for the summer to try to have everything in one place, calendar, chore lists, summer fun list, goals, writing activities. Trying to keep it simple so they can better track their own responsibilities and keep it fun, so it’s not just a work journal. Hoping it helps since they were virtual most of the year and their writing skills got set to the side. Thanks again!

          This is so awesome! And you’re welcome! I’m sure they’ll have fun with these.

          We also have some cool LEGO prompts, if that floats their boat. 🙂
