LESSON 2: WHERE I'M FROM
In difficult times, it can be really helpful to remember and celebrate good memories! Let’s think about where we’re from, what makes us wonderful, and who we love the most.
LESSON 4: PERSONAL ASSET MAPPING
What gifts do you have that can be helpful to yourself and others? What tools exist in your home that can be used for creativity?
Let’s write and make some art about all of the gifts in our lives.
