Having completed my work through of Journal Fodder 365 and still enjoying the activities in Wreck This Journal by Kerri Smith (I’m over half way through the book now) I decided to look into the other titles she has released and get another to play around with. Of all of them it was The Pocket Scavenger that really appealed to me so I snapped it up with the free Amazon voucher I was given a couple of weeks ago for completing a survey.
I thought it would be a fun thing to do both for me and the kids, particularly in the holidays when they are home and getting bored.
As soon as it came through I was impressed with the feel of the cover and pages they’re nice and thick with easy to follow instructions to get you started. There’s a list of things to scavenge and a checklist plus a double page spread reserved for each item. Once you find something you turn the book upside down and flick to a random page which will tell you a way to alter the item. There’s also a section near the end of scavenging activities to do by yourself and with others.
So far so good, I’m enjoying the idea and will be working with it alongside Wreck This Journal. Full reviews on both will come once I’ve completed them, possible with a video to show how they end up, if I’m feeling brave enough.
