Keeping a Journal during the COVID-19 quarantine can be therapeutic, it can be fun for kids, and it’s a great way to keep memories of this time. I know a lot of people say that once this is over they never want to think about it again, but the reality is that we’ll live with these memories for the rest of our lives. This will be our version of a “great depression” story that our grandparents have and it’s important to talk about how we’re feeling during this time. If you’re looking for ways for adults to keep a journal during this time check out my post about How to Keep a COVID-19 Quarantine Journal.
It can be hard for kids to understand what is going on and express their feelings. This is a scary time for many, but thanks to fellow mom Natalie Long and her “My 2020 COVID-19 Time Capsule” journal for kids our children can have an easier and fun way to express their feelings. Once it’s done you can place the time capsule journal into a memory book and it’s something they’ll have for when they’re older.
