A vision board is incredibly useful and inspirational when making your own. They are popular right now and I have seen so many parties for them in the last few years. A vision board is a visual representation of things you want to have or achieve in life. They include a collage of images as well as words that inspire you to achieve your goals. They are great for adults as well as preteens and teenagers. I recently appeared on Bloom, a local daytime TV show to discuss vision boards and how they are helpful.

- Poster board
- Washable markers
- Permanent markers
- Tape, glue or glue sticks
- Stickers (alphabet, numbers, inspirational quotes)
- Old magazines (use different types like health, fashion, fitness, money or food)
- First, go through your magazines and cut the images from them. Have fun looking through magazines and pulling out pictures or words or headlines that inspire you. I like to keep things organized so I keep some of the supplies and smaller clippings on a divided tray.
- Next, go through the magazine cutouts and lay your favorites on the board. Eliminate any images or words that no longer fit your ideas for future goals. As you lay the pictures on the board, you’ll get a sense of how the board should look. I kept moving mine around until I was ready to glue.
- Glue or tape everything onto the board. You can paint or write words with markers as well as use stickers with motivational quotes. Add a picture of yourself in the center of the vision board or members of your family for extra motivation.
- Finally, hang your vision board in a place where you will see it often. I have it by my craft table since I use it often. Don’t let it collect dust. In order for the vision board to work, you need to see it daily. Create an action plan to help make your vision board come to life. That’s the only way to make sure it is successful.
If you have preteens or teenagers, use this time to learn more about your child. Ask questions to find out about their future goals and dreams. Make sure they keep their vision board simple. Nothing too far ahead in the future. It can include what they want to do after leaving high school, if they want to join a sports team or get a lead in a school play. Make it fun for them. Be encouraging and supportive.
