Who loves a fun family day? Me! In my eyes, there is nothing better! Today, I’m going to show you how to make a vision board. It’s a good activity to do with your family or friends!
Most every Sunday, our three sons, daughter-in-laws, and grandbaby, spend the day at our house. I love those days. They are always spent doing something fun….and did I mention, eating?
There always needs to be food!
Next Sunday, we will spend part of the day creating vision boards.
Do you know what a vision board is?
A vision board is basically a collage of images and words representing a person’s wishes or goals. It is a tool you create to help keep you motivated to achieve those goals.
Have you ever made one?
Do you have a word for “2022”?
Oh, you might think vision boards and declaring a word are trendy fads, but honestly they really help you to focus on your goals. Words, phrases, pictures and your own art can be part of the vision board process. It always amazes me how many goals I complete, when using a vision board.
It is a very inexpensive project with loads of fun for everyone. You probably have all the materials, you need, already in your home.
If you have never done a vision board, you are in luck!
I am going to tell you how I do mine.

You will need a poster board, scissors, magazines, glue sticks, pens, colored pencils or markers. Recently, I was able to snag this amazing book. This vision casting clip art book is an awesome resource for building your vision board. I have actually linked several that you can chose from.
Follow These Easy Steps
1.) I take the large poster board and cut it into four. It’s the perfect size. However, if you want a bigger board, you can cut it in half.
2.) Choose your word for the year.
3.) Ask yourself some questions. What are your goals for the year? Do you want to travel, get a new job, lose weight, buy a house or a new car? Sometimes this takes time to do. I always try to think about my goals/visions and determine them ahead of time.
4.) Once I know what my goals are, I start by putting my chosen word in the center of my board. You can cut out the word or write it. That way all my goals and visions surround my word of the year.
5.) Next step, gather pictures or words that represent your visions for the year. Begin to arrange them on your poster board. I always leave some space to write. For example, this year one of my goals was to read 12 books. I left space so every time I finished a book, I could write the title on my board. It helped to show me how close I was to my goal.
6.) Glue your pictures, cut out words or draw your pictures and words on the board.
That’s it! It’s that easy….or maybe for some the process is hard. Putting your goals on paper can be intimidating, but if you don’t try it, you will never know! Creating a vision board can be so much fun and it helps hold yourself accountable to turn your dreams into reality!
One more thought before I go. If you are missing your friends like me, due to Covid, might I suggest you do a Zoom vision board night? I am also going to do a vision board with my gal pals. It’s a great way to share your dreams and enjoy time with your friends, while social distancing.
I hope this was helpful and that you’re able to see the beauty in this activity. I hope all your visions and goals come true in 2022.

This is a great idea to do with your family! I’ve never thought about doing this with others. Currently, I am in the planning phase for next year! Thanks for sharing this Kim!
Yes, it’s the best! We have done it together the last two years. I hope you get the chance to do it. 🙂
Beautiful pics and wonderful inspiration for a family day! Have a few precious ones coming up. (Getting harder with family members in different cities and states for work.). Capture the moments… that might be my theme for 2022. Thanks Kim!
Capture the momnts…that sounds perfect! Grab a pizza and try the vision board day with your family. It’s a fun memory making day! XO
I never thought about a family day for my vision board! That’s such a great idea! Thanks Kim!
You should do it! Order a pizza and call them over! 🙂

Not sure how I missed this…but, I love it! Great inspiration, friend! I think I need that inspiration book, too! Happy Monday!
Thanks, Leslie! You’ll love the book! Let me know how you do.
I haven’t made a vision board in years! I do have a “happiness file” and I keep things that make me happy in their as well as inspirational quotes, photos and more. You have inspired me to make my own, thank you!
I’m sure you could use some of those “happiness” items for your vision board!
Kim, how fun of an idea. I had never heard of one before.
Tammy, you would love this project!
Sue at Blu says
Such a sweet idea! Happy New Year!
Thanks Sue! Happy New Year!
Ok I love this idea! What a wonderful family to do it as a family. Thanks for sharing and happy New Year!
Such a fun family day! Can’t wait to get “my word” to add to it!
Fun ideas! I love your group approach to vision boarding. Honestly, I’d be too embarrassed to share mine with friends or family … but maybe that exposes something I need overcome through vision boarding! xo
Just do one for yourself. There’s definitely no pressure to share! You got this friend! xo
That’s such a great idea to do as a family.
How wonderful that your sons’ families still come together in your home.
Yes, they are the joy of my life! Thanks Rachel!
Your post brings back memories of making vision boards when I was in high school. It looks like your family really enjoyed this activity.
We really have a fun time doing it!
Rachel - Tea and Forget-me-nots says
I love that your grown up family want to do this together, what a joy. Thanks for sharing.
Yes, me too Rachel! Thanks for stopping by!
I have heard of these but never have done one.
I’m working on my editorial calendar now.
It looked like a fun time at the table with family
It was a grand time! Have fun with the calendar! Happy New Year!

I love this! I have been working on my vision board and now I am going to have my mother be part of it!
I’m so glad! It’s a great project to do with others!
Rosemary Palmer says
How fun – I want to make a travel board to visualize where I want to plan.
They really help you stay accountable to your goals. Enjoy!
I’m trying to think of that one word now. Hopefully I’m not still thinking about it a year from now! I will say that “family”, “friendship” and “community” come to mind. Thank you for providing those tips, Kim!
I think those words sound wonderful! Get Emily to do a board with you. You guys would have so much fun!

It’s time for our brainstorming vision board zoom again! I could use some more inspiration.
Yes! Let’s schedule it!!
