How to Make a Vision Board

Vision boards are a great way to set out your own, personal goals – and they’re a fun craft to make, too!

What is a vision board?

A vision board is something you create to remind yourself of your own, personal goals. Whether you wish to get better grades in school, make new friends or land a summer job, your vision board represents a collection of your greatest dreams and desires. Once you’ve made your vision board, you’ll be able to look at it and use it as a reminder of the things you want to achieve most.

How to make a vision board

Think of this as a fun craft project – you can create your vision board by gluing images and words cut from magazines or photographs, or drawn/written by hand, to a large piece of poster board.


To make your vision board, you’ll need a stack of old magazines (that you can cut up), old photographs, pens and markers, scissors, glue and a large piece of poster board.


How to set goals

Before you start cutting and pasting, identify down your goals, dreams and wishes by writing them down on a piece of paper. Your list may look something like this:


My goals are:

  1. To learn how to play the piano.
  2. To get a job life-guarding at the pool this summer.
  3. To get an A in math this year.

My dreams are:

  1. To get a puppy!
  2. To become a pilot some day.
  3. To buy a huge mansion when I grow up.

Goals and dreams are not much different. In the example above, the goals are more immediate (short-term) while the dreams are for the long-term.


Creating your vision board

After you’ve made a list of your goals and dreams, start flipping through the magazines and photographs, cutting out images and words that relate to your goals and dreams. For the above lists, you may find and choose the following images and words:


Images:

  • A piano
  • A puppy
  • A life guard
  • An airplane
  • A mansion

Words:

  • “Dog”
  • “Pilot”
  • “Fly”
  • “Get good grades!”
  • “A+”

If you can’t find pictures or words relating to your goals and dreams, don’t worry! You can draw your own pictures and write your own words of inspiration on your vision board.


Once you’ve collected all the images and words you want to use, glue them onto the poster board however you like. Use pens and markers to draw and write extra images and words that will help inspire you to achieve your goals!


Remember: There are no limits when it comes to your own, personal goals and dreams. With patience, hard work and dedication, any dream is doable, and any wish is achievable!

    If you're willing to face the consequences, then yes. I know a lot of people say violence is never the answer, but in truth it sometimes is. If you really want somebody to leave you alone, then fight. If you win, it shows that you're dominant over that person and hopefully he/she will leave you alone.

    Honestly, I think it's better to get your feelings out sooner rather than later- maybe ask him why he's being mean to you... Though, don't say it in such a way that annoys boys... If you know what I mean.
