We created The Positive Doodle Diary to bring more colour, positivity and self-care into a child’s life and this positivity starts right from the first moment they set eyes on it. The Doodle has a brilliant yellow cover and is embossed all over with the colourful Doodle Weather Mood symbols.
You’ll find the Doodle is slightly bigger than our other books. This means there’s not only tonnes more room for doodling and journaling, but that it’s also easier for the little people in our lives to get hold of it.
As with all our Positive Family of books, the Doodle is hard-backed and comes with its own ribbon bookmark so the owner always knows exactly where to start each day.
What you'll find inside:
- Daily Dear Diary pages with space to write about how they feel, reflect on what to remember about their day as well as sections for self-care and gratitude.
- Daily Doodle Diary pages with space for free doodling.
- Daily positive affirmations for mindful colouring along with related exercises for self-care and positivity.
- Gentle breathwork and yoga exercises designed especially for children.
- A ‘how to use this book’ section for children.
- A chapter for adults including messages from our expert collaborators and also the science behind the Doodle Diary.
How to use The Positive Doodle Diary
We believe the key to The Positive Doodle Diary is for a child to explore and use it at their own pace. The Doodle is not homework and shouldn’t be about pressure.
The Doodle is designed as a diary to be used every day and in total there are pages for 45 days. However, we’ve left it all undated so a child can dip in and out as they wish - not every activity has to be done every day. The most important thing is that a child wants to do this, not has to.
We believe the Doodle is perfect for children between the ages of 5 and 10 years old. Older children can use the diary on their own if they want to, but younger ones will need guidance. We all learn through modelling behaviour and we’ve had wonderful feedback from parents and carers who have been working together with their children in family journaling sessions. Adults using one of The Positive Family - The Positive Planner, Positive Wellness Journal or Positive Bullet Diary - and children working on their Doodle. This all helps facilitate a conversation around looking after ourselves as a unit - something that really makes our hearts sing!
