August Journal Prompts that are family friendly

Happy August! Summer is quickly coming to an end and while we have had a wonderful time traveling and exploring our state, we are ready to get back into our regular routine – especially our family journaling project!

Our journaling project is a great way to document all of the great things and connect and communicate on subjects we may not always talk about.
