As part of our ongoing “Family History in 15 Minutes” series of weekly downloadable journaling prompts to make family history easy, today we celebrate National Children’s Day by recording a childhood memory. Don’t worry about recording the most memorable or the most important—just record any memory that comes to mind. Any memory recorded helps preserve part of your story, part of your childhood. And you can help your children record their memories while they’re fresh in their mind, because the things that matter most to them now might not be what comes to their mind years from now.
Is there a story from your childhood that your children haven’t heard yet but would enjoy or be able to laugh with you about? Share it with them!
Why This Matters
Sometimes recording your history can seem overwhelming, but done one little memory at a time your history can come to life with ease over time.
