We have an activity sheet for kids today; not just limited to tweens and teens. It is from the My Feelings Journal which is aimed at this age range. We want to help, with Trigger Publishing and Upside Down Books, who have kindly donated the activity sheet, to encourage kids to follow their dreams.
Having aspirations and dreams is a wonderful things for our children to focus on. Dreams can be something unattainable, such as being able to have X-Ray vision like their favourite Superhero. They can be something that could very well be achievable if they are single-minded and determined enough to work at it; such as becoming a professional footballer, or a model. Though of course, those dreams do need our kids to have a little bit of talent too….
One of the dreams that our children CAN potentially visualise more easily, is that dream to travel to far away places. These could be places in their imagination, or they could be real locations that they have read about, or seen on the television or in films.
This activity sheet is all about thinking about those places that our children would love to go…
5 places I want to go someday
Travel is an amazing way to broaden your experiences, thoughts, and sometimes give your children feelings and ideas that they might not ever have had before. Why not get our children to think about which places they have seen and heard about they want to visit, and what makes them dream of going there?
You could even talk about the places that YOU have been to. Places that you dreamt you wanted to go to when you were a child. As well as discuss whether the feelings you THOUGHT you would have there were the ones that you ACTUALLY had.
This activity is a wonderful way to discuss with our children the emotions that we feel as we walk through some of the most poignant places in the world. Such as excitement, and awe. From the horror and sadness of the fields where our soldiers fell in France, to the joy and exhilaration of walking through the Alhambra or the Taj Mahal.
