Children need Creative expression

Ongoing effort to “work on the house”,spent the weekend doing just that. The main thing we accomplished is that each person now has their own personalized “creation station”. Liesie chose to move into her own room (no more bunk beds for her),giving Helena a room of her own. In each bedroom now,all the desks are tricked out with organizers,art supplies,writing materials, binders,journals,stampers,sketchbooks,pens,pencils,shelves,etc. So we all have a quiet,peaceful place to go when we need to “process”. Spoke in depth about the value of  creative expression in dealing with feelings,fears,life situations. They were so good all day, so excited and played together so beautifully. In between playtime, they’d each go to their creation station and doodle,write,’organize’, and paint. Hope this encourages a lifelong love of the arts,and provides them a positive outlet during the tumultous periods.
