Cap­ture Life’s Mo­ments

Sunday Star - - LIFE -

In ad­di­tion to get­ting out and ex­plor­ing new things, en­cour­age daily writ­ing, col­or­ing and ex­pres­sion by ask­ing kids to cre­atively cap­ture their sum­mer ex­pe­ri­ences. Teach­ing kids to write and draw about things they find fun is a great way to re­in­force what they’ve learned and foster a love for writ­ing. Let­ting kids get cre­ative be­gins with the right sup­plies. For ex­am­ple, Ze­bra Cadoo­zles and Starters come in dif­fer­ent de­signs to get cre­ativ­ity flow­ing. Make sum­mer ad­ven­tures more mem­o­rable by en­cour­ag­ing kids to cap­ture them through these ideas:

1. Write about ex­pe­ri­ences in a journal or di­ary.

2. Mom and Dad can join in on the fun by writ­ing or cre­at­ing their own bul­let jour­nals us­ing Ze­bra Sarasa Fine­lin­ers, Mild­lin­ers and more. Bul­let jour­nals can be per­fect for plan­ning sum­mer ac­tiv­i­ties.

3. Take pho­tos to share with friends and fam­ily both on­line and in-per­son.

4. Draw pic­tures of the fa­vorite parts of the day. An op­tion like Ze­bra Zen­sa­tions Col­ored Pen­cils are per­fect for writ­ing, col­or­ing, sketch­ing and ex­press­ing cre­ativ­ity for ev­ery craft and project. They’re re­fill­able and tri­an­gu­lar-shaped, so they won’t fall off the ta­ble.

5. Share ex­pe­ri­ences on so­cial me­dia.

6. Col­lect draw­ings, writ­ing en­tries and pho­tos to cre­ate a sum­mer keep­sake or scrap­book.
