Holy Griswold!

Yes, summer vacation for many means the traditional family vacation. I visualize the Griswold family driving cross country in their station wagon with Aunt Edna tied to the roof and "Holiday Road" blaring in the back ground.

Whether you are headed to the beach or lake, across the country or all the way to Cairo like my friend and realtor extraordinaire, Kim, Hampton Paper has the perfect travel accessory... kids journals and sketch pads. Kim purchased the journals for her girls and her niece and nephew - what a hit!.

Journaling is a great way for kids to express themselves and for Moms to sneak in some encouragement to practice writing and spelling over the summer. As an added bonus you might get a good chuckle when you read it and see the world through their eyes! If you have little ones who cant write, the personalized sketchbook will ensure they don't get left out of the fun. It's also a great keepsake for children to look back in years to come and remember that special family trip. Also, if your kids are like mine they love to see how much their writing and drawing has improved and reminisce about last year when they couldn't spell (or draw or write whatever the case may be!)

Look for this new addition coming to our web site. The personalized journals retail for $28.00.

Happy Trails!

  1. It was really a great way to get the kids to journal without making it a chore for them. Their teachers will be so happy!
