Are your kids tired of online schooling? Are they feeling worried and isolated due to the pandemic? Then this journal for kids will definitely boost their morales.
Children are being affected by physical distancing, social isolation, worldwide school closures, due to the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Over 1.2 billion children are out of the classroom. Some children and young people may be feeling more isolated, anxious, bored, and uncertain. They may feel fear and worry about the impact of the virus on their families. There could be internal stress building up, waiting to get released.
On one hand, there is the anxiety of the pandemic, on the other, there is the pressure of online schooling that has been on the rise.
It has increased screen time for kids, along with a sense of monotony and fatigue. According to Dr. Yi Pang, professor and associate dean for research at the Illinois College of Optometry, fatigue, dry eyes and an irregular sleep cycle are common effects of excessive screen time. Fatigue is probably the most prominent symptom. When we look at a screen, our eyes have to work harder in order to focus.
It becomes important to take breaks, clear the mind and unwind daily. Especially with holidays around the corner, we need a solution fast!
So introducing one of the finest journals on ‘Kids Motivation’ in the market.
The best way to destress and motivate your child!
Help your kids unwind and channel their energy into something productive, away from screens. Help them open the world of isolation and fill it with wonder and magic. Something that will entertain and provide a much-needed escape into the fun and magical world of imagination.
To practice affirmations, mindfulness, jokes, brain games, gratitude, STEM activities, design challenges daily.

The first part of the daily journaling in this book is a daily affirmation. Affirmations, in general, are known to decrease negative thinking and serve as reminders for positive change. The ones in this book are short and directly influence their mind. They create a positive start to the day- and a great way to lead into the rest of the activities featured in the book. There is a joke-for-day to set the happy mood for the day.
2) Engineering Design Process and Invention Prompts
The second part of this book covers the engineering design process and invention prompts. It consists of an innovative prompt and a process that guides the kids through a technical problem-solving approach and how to create a solution. It walks the kids through steps such as asking questions to develop knowledge and information, using their imagination to then plan to create solutions, and finally improving upon their ideas. This type of activity can boost children’s creative and critical thinking.
Activities like making super-hero gloves, squishy paints, masks that zips microbes to zero-waste journal cover, and more!
