I like to encourage kids to make layered pages in their art journals. Rather than writing NEXT to their pictures, it's more fun to write OVER them to merge them together.
1. Cut out a simple boat and sail out of an old map and glue it with a glue stick,
2. Draw a water line with a colored pencil and fill it in. Color draw clouds and sun and color in also.
3. Use a ball point pen to write a story about where you would like to sail away to.
