Spirit Week and Self Care

This week we are celebrating two themes—Self Care and Spirit Week.
For your self-care challenge, we are inviting you to make glitter bottles. These bottles are a great stress reliever and are calming to look at when you feel anxious. For additional entries for the prize, make a poster that shares how you practice self-care (reading, exercise, meditation, etc.). Click here to learn how to make a glitter bottle, or make your own. Ten entries will be awarded for each glitter bottle created and 10 additional entries for each self-care poster.
