This printable weekly planner with doodling space combines the love of doodling and planning.
I love doodling. It’s fun. It’s pretty, but doesn’t need to be. It’s “no-expectations”, “let’s-just-see-what-happens” type of work.
I love planning. It helps us in being wise with our time. I always over-plan. Over the years, my approach to planning has morphed into more of a collection of stuff that I think will work. A bucket list, if you will. My planning has also become a “no-expections”, “let’s-just-see-what-happens” type of work.
I’ve put together a free printable weekly planner with doodling space to combine my love of doodling and planning.

I doodle down ideas for our week ahead in the large box on the right hand side. I love using colours, lines, circles, arrows, etc. It’s my mind map. A space for me to quickly doodle down things as I think of them.
I use the smaller boxes on the left hand side to record what we actually get to do during the week. I also jot down any spontaneous activities or interests that pop up during our week together.
The lovely thing about this planner is that it can be whatever you make of it. Use it as a weekly meal planner; jot down meals on the left hand side and use the large box for your shopping list. Or use it as a journal template; use one side for photos and the other for notes.
I think I may get my preschoolers to start using this for their first journal. Draw pictures of the day’s highlights in each of the smaller boxes and use the large box for photos of our time together during the week.
I would love to hear how you use this weekly planner with doodling space.
