Sometimes the Best Toys Are Not Toys at All!
This webinar is for Children and Youth.
Being cooped up in your home can bring about a lot of feelings of boredom, uneasiness, lack of creativity and imagination, and loss of connection with others. What if... there were playful items that you could use for whatever you wanted? Items that didn’t just have one way of playing with? In today’s video, Caileigh is going to show you toys – that aren’t toys at all! She will show you how you can become more creative and imaginative, and how to get rid of that boredom and sadness, with items that you find outdoors.
