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!

    YEs I have been bullied. A lot. People who I think are my friends are back stabbers. They suddenly just like turn on me. I've had rumours spread about me and I was so sad. I hated being bullied. But the best thing to do if you are being bullied is to hold your head high and not cry. Because if you show a single tear that is what the bully wants And it will take you as an easy target and will bully you more and more and more and more. And bullies won't stop until you stand up to them.

    I would also talk to them and tell them how you feel. If they still say they are signing you up for the membership as a 13 year old and it scares you that much I would just tell them to leave you off the membership until you do turn 13.

    I think every house has some drama going on in it everyday. In my house my Mom is a divorced mother of 3 kids. My older sister is away at college but when she was here there were yelling matches between my mom and her about staying out too late and getting a speeding ticket. Also with my mom being the only one raising us she has to work full time leaving me to watch my little brother who is 10 after he gets home from school. There also can be some battles that go on there and my mom doesn't want to here it from me or him when she walks through the door after work. I just try to not make it all personal and chalk it up to the stress of everyday life.
