Activity: Creative and Expressive Writing
Writing things down at the beginning or the end of the day has its health benefits. The act of reflection as well as writing can relieve stress and provide a healthy way to express emotions. Start with simple journaling prompts and adding art with the pages is fun as well. Here are some ideas.
My favorite way to spend a rainy day is….
My favorite piece of clothing is….
10 things that make me smile are….
My favorite words are….
If my body could talk, it would say….

Writing & Collage Activity: Jot down any of your anxieties or frustrations on a page, being as elaborate as you wish. Then take your page and tear it up! Take the pieces and create a piece of collage art in the art journal. Writing, tearing, and creating show how we feel, express, and work things out.
