Today I want to talk to you about your kids specifically about why you may want to show them how to create their own vision boards. Is it necessary? Will it help them in some way? Yes, it will help them. Here’s why.
Goal setting is an important part of life skills. It’s never too early for children to learn how. It helps teach them to take responsibility for themselves.
It also helps them build self-confidence. When they reach their goal, they believe in themselves and their abilities. They are more likely to set new goals in the future.
One way they can visualize their goal is to create a simple vision board. It represents the things they want to accomplish or acquire. It works as a constant reminder of what they are reaching towards.
Vision boards are a great tool to teach children about how to set goals and take action to achieve them. It helps them stay motivated and focused. ‘
Help your child create a vision board. First, help them clarify what their goal and intentions are. It’s a good idea to start with small goals that are age appropriate. The goal needs to be realistic and attainable.
Next, help them gather their supplies. They will need a poster board, crayons or markers, glue stick, scissors, and magazines.
Let them choose the images they think represents their goal. Have them glue the pictures onto the poster board, letting their creativity run free.
Remember to encourage them and cheer them on as they take the steps to reach their goals.
Questions to Ask Kids When Creating Their Vision Board
Last time we talked about why kids should create a vision. I want to continue with this. Let’s look at some questions you can use to help kids gain clarity on what they want the intention of their board to be.
- What do you want to be when you grow up-a baseball player, banker, astronaut, ballerina, or something else? What kind of person do you aspire to be- caring, happy, humanitarian?
- What do you enjoy doing when you aren’t in school? What do you want to do this summer or next year? What would you like to learn to do?
- Where do you want to go? Where is a place you dream of going? Where have you already traveled to? What’s your favorite place to visit? How do you get there?
- Who do you love? Family? Pets? What makes you feel like you are loved?
- If you could help someone in some way, how would you do it? What can you do to make yourself a better person?
Guess what, these questions can be applied to adults as well!
Until next time,
