These little diaries are a wonderful way to help children express thoughts and feelings, freely and openly. You will need a small diary and some stickers and colours to decorate. If you are working with a group of children, you can buy packs of diaries cheaply in most discount stores. Explain that these diaries are special diaries and are for the child to write about their thoughts and feelings. You can explain that this diary is just for them and that they don't have to show it to anybody unless they want to. You can then encourage the child to decorate the diary in a way that shows their personality, likes/dislikes, favourite interests ect. If you like you can write the words "Today I feel" at the top of each page.
