The ultimate travel journal for kids is suitable for children approximately aged between 5-12 years. This travel journal for kids is ideal for homeschool travelling families, school holiday adventures or it would make a great gift to give children and families at the end of a school term before their holidays. It is educational, interesting and a useful resource to document travels and experiences.
The ultimate travel journal for kids. Writing, drawing, character development and a reward system.
The exciting thing about this journal is that it is designed to help parents…
It has a reward system that you can use to encourage your children to help out and behave well while travelling. This is based on a ‘token economy’ behaviour system. Reward children with tokens (for instant gratification) and they can exchange for real things (rewards).
Another way this journal aims to help parents is by challenging children to develop their character. Challenges encourage children to help, be kind, do something brave, meet someone new (even if it is a tour guide or hotel receptionist met through parents, it still builds confidence and social skills), learn new information and be curious on their travels.

I created this travel journal for my own children before we set off to travel Australian bit by bit. Our first trip is the little lap… Of Tassie. You can find me @Aussie Kids Travel Australia in a Lotus. Since I put hours and hours of time and hard work into making this journal I thought I would share it with other families who could benefit from it.
This journal is the perfect way to document your travels. It will encourage reading, writing, and drawing, while on the road making memories. It will also give children something to hang on to and look back through in years to come. There are plenty of bonus games and activities to keep the kids busy. I am sure it can be helpful and useful for others. My kids are so excited to go travelling, so they can start journaling.
