With creative and imaginative drawing prompts, My Time Capsule: All About Me! Art Journal is an interactive journaling experience that allows kids to record a slice of their lives to look back on later. 

This entertaining sketchbook journal is filled with quick and easy-to-answer questions and space to write and draw the answers. Also included are stickers, suggestions of things to tape or paste into the book, things to color and cut out, and tips on how to doodle everyday life. Once the last prompt is complete, journalers will mark the date to open the time capsule journal, and then put the book away. Their time capsule awaits their older selves!

With My Time Capsule: All About Me! Art Journal, children can draw, doodle, design, and color the answers to questions about everyday life. Some prompts include:

This is an outline of my hand... and this is an outline of my foot. This is what my bedroom looks like from above.... and when I look out my window, this is what I see. This is a portrait of a special member of my family. This is why they are special to me. This is a memory of my favorite birthday... and this is a drawing of what I want for my next birthday! If I could have three wishes granted, this is what they would be. Thought-provoking prompts, space to draw and write on every page, cut-outs, and a bonus sticker sheet drive creativity and engagement in the moment, as well as record things about everyday life that a child may otherwise forget. Each prompt is dated, so the book can be completed all at once or over a longer period of time, and in no particular order. Additionally, interactive activities demonstrate how to create a time capsule related to the art and activities completed in the journal and then hide it away for re-discovery years later.

Entertaining and fun in the moment, this drawing journal is also meant to be saved to become a treasured keepsake years later.

This journal is seriously so cute! I am an educator and will definitely look forward to buying a copy of this to use in my classroom. I loved the illustrations and the writing prompts allow students to be creative while still giving structure. I think this would be appropriate for kids 5-12 (with some wiggle room). Definitely a great gift for kids to keep them busy and interested!

This is a great drawing and writing journal that children can add to over time and then look back on in the future. There is a great variety of activities and ideas to help keep kids going, but it is also flexible enough that they can decide what exactly they want to include. It does not have to be done in order and is also not gender specific. There is lots of space to draw and doodle, but many of the pages could be used for writing or drawing. At over 120 pages this book is sure to keep a child busy and entertained for quite a while. Journalling, planning and reflection are also great mindfulness skills for young children and can be used as tools or strategies when facing difficult times. I would highly recommend this book for families of children in the 6-11 age range who are artistic and creative or express interest in having a record of what they were like at their current age to look back on. Or maybe as a parent you really want to provide this kind of memory for your child to look back on.

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for giving me a sneak peak at this awesome journal that is coming out soon!

It is so freaking cute!
This is the most cutest journal I have ever come across!

Seriously I wanted to cry. It's so cute!

Okay, back to the basics.

I love everything about this journal that would guide the kids to record about themselves as well as what they like and feel.

The journal also provides enough space for updating on their daily activities and habits.

I cannot help it. It's so cute. Forget it. Just get this in dozens as it is undated (which I really appreciate!) and can be used all year round for years!

Thank you, Quarto Publishing Group - Walter Foster, for the advance review copy.

This title could be a fun summer project for a child you know. Kids should love the many extra like stickers, coloring pages and more. They can include info on favorite foods, hobbies, family lore and more. I especially liked that there was a section entitled “Future Me.” Kids are even instructed on how to make a time capsule of this title, so that, many years from now, they can look at what they created and remember their younger self.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto-Walter Foster Jr. Books for this title. All opinions are my own.

What a fantastic idea! I think all young ones should be encouraged to make time capsules of all different kinds. I wish I had!

I love art journals and I love how this one encourages children to express themselves and their individuality. I also really like how the activities help them to discover who they are right now on their journey, and also to contemplate who they might be in the future.
