Loom Journals | A Parent-Child Heirloom

$53,913

The Loom Journal is beautifully designed to foster off-screen communication and connection with your child in a way that’s never been done before: through what we call Connective Journaling.

While other journals record milestones and memories, the Loom Journal also documents your relationship with your child by providing a place to have conversations, do activities, and answer questions together.

  • Develops and strengthens the parent-child relationship 
  • Screen-free connection 
  • Improves reading, writing, and communication skills in an engaging way
  • A safe place to communicate, connect, and express yourselves freely
  • Sparks creativity and imagination
  • Contains research-backed practices of gratitude, affirmations, and the growth mindset
  • Helps your child learn his or her place in your family and in the world
  • A keepsake you’ll treasure forever 

While any child can benefit from the Loom Journal, our content is targeted to children ages 5-18. You can use this journal to strengthen and grow any relationship! Use it with your children, grandchildren, or foster children.

There are so many different kinds of journals to choose from—

  • Gratitude journals 
  • Memory journals 
  • Affirmation journals 
  • Creative writing journals 
  • Art journals

The Loom Journal combines them all and eliminates the need for multiple journals. It’s an all-in-one journal, combining the best elements of the top journals on the market and putting them in one beautifully designed place.

Many journals are designed with clearly feminine elements and are catered to girls and women. The Loom Journal is beautifully but neutrally designed so it can be used for a boy or girl with his or her father or mother. 

  • Perfect bound so it lays flat when you write 
  • Archival paper that will last for years to come
  • Modern, timeless design
  • Keepsake pocket to hold mementos
  • Ribbon placeholder to keep your spot
  • Gold embossed vegan leatherette cover
  • Mini book of prompts to start conversations inside and outside of the journal 

The Loom Journal is designed in a way that you work through it at your own pace. Sometimes you’ll write in it together, and other times you will write separately. The Loom Journal is an engaging journaling tradition that will make for lifelong memories, lasting connection, and a treasured family heirloom. 

Back us early to receive our Early Bird pricing, the lowest our journals will ever be! But even if you miss the Early Bird pricing, you can still take advantage of our Kickstarter pricing, which is a big discount from our normal retail pricing! 

We have some FUN colors planned for our journal covers. As we hit our goals, we'll release more colors! 

Don't worry: if you back us early but want a colored journal when they're released, you'll have the option to switch colors! Once we're funded, we'll send you a survey so you can specify your color choice.

We’re Kim, Tosha, and Kimberly. We want to be intentional, connected, hands-on moms. We want to hold on to what matters most when so many distractions are vying for our attention and our kids’ attention. We want to foster deep connections and open conversations with our kids. 

We created Loom Journals because we believe in the power and importance of fostering parent + child connection. Investing in that relationship creates a generation of children who feel loved, believe in who they are, and feel confident in the good they can do within their families and in the world. 

We're dedicated to providing tools for parents to bring more intention, joy, and depth to their relationships with their kids.

We’ve been working tirelessly for over a year to perfect the design and content of our journals, but we need your help to print them. We’re relying on you to help us get this product to as many families as possible. Thank you for your help! Backing us and sharing this project with your friends, families, and social media channels will go a long way to helping us reach our goal. 

       

An extra special thanks to our dear husbands and kiddos who have supported us throughout our creation of this journal and campaign. Also, thank you from the bottom of our hearts to our family, friends, and excited supporters who have cheered us on, believed in us and joined us in our mission to connect families.
