Craft: Reap what you sow pictures
Symbolism of Craft: What we cast as seed is what grows. The flowers symbolize the growth of a plant - each with a word attached of what we desire to reap
Draw a picture of a flower garden
Use stamps or makers for affirmative sayings.
Craft: Giving Love
Symbolism of Craft: Give and receive from your heart
Have the children cut out paper hearts and think about something nice about the other children in the classroom. Write this nice thought (or have the teacher write) on a heart for each child and give the heart to the others. Ideally, each child will receive one heart from each child in the class.
Craft: Large and small yarn mazes
Symbolism of Craft: When we struggle against things, it becomes harder to accomplish our goals.
Large: Stretch yarn around the room, under tables, between chairs, with holes large enough for the children to fit through. Have them one by one or as a team move through as many of the ‘holes’ created by the yarn as possible.
Small: Cut 24” of yarn and tie in a circle. Perfect for the children to do Jacob’s Ladder
We have the freedom to create anything we desire for our lives. But to create freely means to create without resistance. Nature shows us the blueprint daily on how to create without resistance … without putting any obstacles in the path. If we choose resistance such as fear, worry or doubt, we choose to block our own good. The only thing holding us back from realizing our desires it our resistance to it. See Entire Lesson Here

Relish the Journey... Being present in each moment of our lives leads to more happiness. When your mind is thinking of the future or worrying about the past, you cannot be fully present to the people, places and situations now. We will use passages from “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle as we celebrate the moment of now. Practice the power for enjoying each moment. See Entire Lesson Here
