5 ideas for creating a vision board –



I always wanted to instill in my children that they could do anything if they wanted to. I guess I’ve always been a bit of a dreamer. I also like to plan. Without knowing what you want, how could you have it, right?

So this year my daughter and I decided to do our first vision boards to plan some of our goals and thoughts as encouragement for the coming year. We made it a girls night out. It was so much fun, and I thought it would be great to share it so you can do it with your kids too! Have fun. Put on some fun music, cook some popcorn, and get inspired.

First of all: what is a vision board? It’s an inspiring collage of pictures and words you create to encourage your pursuit of goals and dreams. They are sometimes even called dream boards or goal boards. You can use a poster board or even take a large Amazon box and cut out one side to use. Then my daughter and I took out a bunch of old magazines and cut out words and pictures that inspired us. We also printed a few photos that we found online. Take scissors, markers, and whatever else you want to decorate. There are a ton of ideas and prompts on Pinterest if you need some inspiration.

My daughter and I focused on the goals for 2021, but you can customize yours for anything. It’s really about capturing whatever inspires or motivates you. There is no wrong way to do it!

Here are some of the prompts we used for our tables:

1. What do you want to focus on for 2021? For example, we both want to read more books, so we’ve found photos of books we like for inspiration.

2. What words inspire you? Cut out words or letters from magazines to create your words.

3. Where would you like to visit? Print photos of places you would like to travel to one day.

4. Which quote inspires you? Find a quote you like and print it for the board.

5. Who inspires you? It could be a family member, an athlete or a celebrity. Find a photo of this person to add to your board.

You get the picture. It does take a bit of time, so plan to make it a night out. When you’re done, vision boards are great for hanging in your kids’ bedrooms or office. For me, this is a creative way to teach goal setting to our kids from an early age and to think about how they can work to achieve those goals. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
