Bullet journals are great ways to express thoughts, get creative, and plan. They can be used for all occasions; even holidays like Christmas! My family was always very keen on getting presents for each other, so I would be asked for my wishlists months before Christmas! Encouraging children to create a pretty Christmas wishlist in their bullet journals during the holiday season may be a good way to bring out their creativity instead of purely focusing on what they want.
I am a huge fan of christmas gifts that involve the family spending time together, so try encouraging your children to add events or family days to their wishlists, like a day at the museum or a trip to the outdoor ice rink.
Below are some ideas of how children can use their creativity and imagination to create a christmas wishlist to share with family! Bullet journalling may be a time consuming task if you have to design and organize the pages from scratch. So we've included some templates that are all ready to go; just fill them in and build your own bullet journal!
- Using pencils and markers, draw a christmas theme visual with spaces for your wishlist. I chose to draw a a christmas tree with snowy tinsel for my wishlist. You could also try a christmas wreath with christmas ornaments for the wishlit, christmas bells with holly leaves for the wishlist, or even a candy cane with the stripes for the wishlist.
- Once your drawing is outlined fill in the visual with color using pencil crayons, wax crayons, paint, etc. I chose to paint with water color using my favourite Water Color Paint Techniques.
- Once your picture is done, write out different things that you are wishing for this christmas. You can brainstorm as a family and come up with some special presents that you can do with each other!
