COLLABORATION ALERT! Please welcome my friends Hannah from Lego Lover’s Blog (https://legoloversblog.wordpress.com) and her brother Sam! They came over to have lunch and do vision boards last week, and this week we are ready to show you what we have planned . If you missed my vlog on my goals, check it out here! 

Have you ever wondered how to do a vision board with friends?

  1. First, get all of your materials! You might need a printerportable photo printer, and paper. I like to have crayons, markers, pencils, color pencils, pens, permanent markers (like Sharpies – we love the gold and silver ones) just in case we want to do some of our own decorations. Glue sticks, glue, brads, tape, colorful duct tape, hot glue gun are good for adding the magazine clippings and glitter and gems to the board. If you are feeling fancy, and want to have a mixed media board, you can also havepPaintpaintbrushes, paper plates, and cups of water. You can use all sorts of things to support your actual board like canvas or poster board, but I like to have notepaper, construction paper, and poster board either way. Here are some other things you will need.
    • Glitter, stickers, gems
    • Magazines, newspapers, scissors
    • Camera, music, laptop, cell phone, trash can
  2. Have each person write down a list of goals for the year. Here’s how I figure out what goals to include.
  3. If you want to, each person can read their goals out loud. ‘hat way, when someone else comes across a word or image that might help
  4. Get some paper and sketch out what you want your vision board to look like.
  5. After you’ve figured out what you want your board to look like generally, start going through magazines to see what images and words you may want to use.
  6. Now it is time to give everyone their glue, scissors, paint palettes, paint brushes, and an allotment of glitter, fasteners, tape, stickers, crayons, markers, and construction paper. If you don’t have enough for each person to have their own, you can work in pairs so that you don’t have to reach across the table too much. 
  7. Now for the fun part! Start adding stuff to your vision board. Have fun! Be creative! 
  8. After everyone is finished, you can clean up and present your boards. Each person can explain why they chose the pictures and words that they chose, and share how the board represents their goals.

Have fun making your vision board!
