Mini Makers at Home | Sketchbook Making & Happiness Journals

In Part 1 of our happiness journals project, we learn how to make our own small sketchbook. To make your sketchbook you will need three or four sheets of paper, a ruler, a pencil and a needle and thread (or a hole punch and twine).

In Part 2 of our happiness journal project, we fill our sketchbooks with things we see and experience every day that make us feel happy. You can work on this journal throughout the week, adding drawings, stories or collages each day of activities and moments that made you feel happy.

If you need some help getting started, we’ve put together a list of questions to help you reflect on and notice the happy moments throughout your day.

Each month at Esker we facilitate hands-on art workshops for children. As we cannot currently host these classes in our spaces we are bringing them to you in your homes. Our education team has put together a series of amazing creative projects for you, and your family, that use everyday and easy to find materials that you might already have on hand. We will keep posting new project ideas and craft inspiration weekly, so keep checking back for updates.
