Activity therapists Shanon Haskins and Ellen Elkins had some fun recently helping record segments for a Maranda – WOTV 4 Women “Cool School” spotlight on art therapy activities that parents and kids can do at home!
The therapists – along with a couple of their young helpers – demonstrated techniques for “fluffy slime”-making, guided imagery painting and kid-friendly yoga. These are all activities that are fun and easy for kids to do while also offering the benefits of have a calming a effect that can help lower stress levels in children and their parents.
