If you can see your aspirations on a daily basis, they are more likely to become a reality. Start by writing down goals and ideas, and have your kids do the same!

Browse the old magazines for words, phrases and images that represent each goal.

Use the Mod Podge to paste each clipped item onto the blank canvas. Be sure to brush a coat of the gloss over each image. Don’t worry, it will dry clear!

Once it’s done, your kids can decide where to hang or place their vision board, and remember, it should be a place they can see clearly!
