Dare to Dream BIG with a "Dream It" Board!

A "Dream It" board activity provides a great way to brainstorm and explore what you love and want in life. It is designed to take you out of your thinking brain of what you should and ought to want and allowing what you desire to shine through. For this activity you will want to set aside at least an hour of quiet time along with the following supplies:

  • 10-15 magazines

  • 1 large poster board (An opened file folder works, too)

  • Glue

  • Scissors


  1. Begin by asking yourself a powerful question, such as: "What do I really want for my life?" What will make me happy?" or "What is important to me?"

  2. Next, look through the magazines and cut out pictures and words that answer your question. It is important not to question what you choose, simply trust the process to see what is revealed to you.

  3. Once you've selected your pictures and words, trim and paste them onto the poster board any way that seems right to you.

  4. When you have completed your board, what stands out to you? What patterns, colors, or themes have emerged? Perhaps your board is filled with bright colors, flowers, poetry, various countries, mountains, the ocean, and so on.

  5. What did you place in the center of your board? Is that something that is important or significant to you?

  6. Create a list of the items or ideas that were revealed to you from your board suggesting what you are wanting for your life and expand on them. For example, if you put a picture of a yellow sports car on your board, expand on what action you might want to take about this car. Perhaps you want to take a road trip with friends or family, purchase that car, or something else entirely. The point is to expand on your dreams.

And you know what you know.

And you are the one who'll decide where to go."
