When I first came across 940 Saturdays, I was ecstatic! I've been wanting to get back into Journaling, and was also looking for some interesting activity books that my son and I could do together. Looks like I killed two birds with one stone.
First of all, the design of the book is amazing. It's a hardback with padded covers, with a smooth finish and illustrations that my son loves. You open the book to your journal entries, where you'd document the Saturdays and all the activities and or events, you're family completed on those days. I began to flip through the book, just enjoying the design really, and stumbled upon the section after "Saturday 940". It's titled, "Developmental Milestones" that covered milestones your child will experience at certain ages. Good touch Doc, very good touch. Just when I thought my tour was over, I stumbled upon the cute envelop on the back flap, that contains your "family activities" booklet. Here inside, are a BUNCH of activities for you to do with your little, or not-so-little ones sorted in different age groups. I actually found activities that I would've never thought to do with my 2 year old, so I'm definitely glad I was able to review this.
For example, I don't know about anybody else, but building a puppet stage and having family skits is something that never crossed my mind. Both my mother and son are very dramatic, (they are definitely destined for the big screen lol) so it would be amazing to try this out together, and jot down the experience in one of the journal entries.
If you're looking to start documenting the activities, events, or just thoughts that you share with your family, I most certainly recommend you pick this up! I give this 5 stars !
