🎨"2021 Family Art Therapy Week 17" SHARING/COMPARTIR with Ms. Mandi, BSW🎨

2021- FAMILY ART-THERAPY WEEK 17



This weeks projects are going to be related to the Positive Action Word of the Week- SHARING

A sharing person is generous and willing to share. If you are sharing, you are

glad to give things to others. To share something is to use it or enjoy it with

others, like when people share a cake at a birthday party, or you let a

classmate use a pencil.



Your projects can be uploaded and emailed to me at: amanda.knepper@k12.wv.us OR amanda@morganpartnership.org

Please check the links on PositiveValuesNetwork.com for other art therapy projects and Positive Action videos.

Monday- Project: FAMILY GAME OF PICK-UP STICKS

Materials: Your family members and sticks that you gather and decorate (or the game Pick up Sticks). You can go outside with your family and gather some small twigs. Make sure that the sides are smooth, and they are as straight as possible. You can be creative and paint them if you like to make your own set. Once they dry completely, you can play! You can also choose to paint Q-tips and allow them to dry as shown in the picture below.

To incorporate the word SHARING this week for Positive Actions, we are going to be playing some family games that involve taking turns.

With your family, you will sit around a table or on the floor, if you would like. You will gather all the sticks in one hand and gently let them fall in a pile. You will choose who goes first, and that person will attempt to remove a stick without moving any of the rest of the sticks in the pile. If they are successful, they get to keep that stick. Then, the next person will go. You will repeat this until the pile is gone. Whoever has the most sticks at the end wins the game. This is a game your family can play over and over, and you are sharing your time as a family and taking turns as well. This game will also teach the lesson of patience because it takes lots of patience to wait your turn and to give someone else the time they need to take their turn.




Tuesday- Project: FAMILY HOP-SCOTCH
Materials: Today you will need your family members, different colors of sidewalk chalk,

and a blacktop/concrete to create your game to play.

You and your family will decide what kind of pattern, picture, and colors you would like to use. You may choose to draw it beforehand in case you want to make any changes. There are many ways to create a Hop-Scotch game and there are a few pictures attached below for ideas.

Once your family decides the pattern you want to create, you can use your chalk and make your game board.

Finally, each member will take turns hoping on the game board.

Think about this “Why is it Important to Take Turns with Others?” “What Happens if you Don’t?” “How do You Grow as a Person, When You Take Turns?” Talk about this with your family.



Wednesday- Project: FAMILY FUN WITH CREATIVITY: “KER-PLUNK”

Materials: Today you will need your family members, marbles or pom-poms, Choice of a bottle, colander, paper towel holder or toilet paper roll. You will also need sticks/skewers or straws or something to stick through to hold the marbles or pom-poms back. (These ideas are shown in the pictures below).

This activity is re-creating the Game “Ker-Plunk.”

Each member of the family will take a turn pulling a stick out, trying not to let the pom- poms or marbles fall through the container. You will repeat this process, each taking a turn, until the marbles or pom-poms fall through the holes. Whoever ends up with the most sticks, before the fall, wins.



Thursday- Project: FAMILY BOARD GAME NIGHT

Materials: You will need one dice (die), and then you will choose to either use an attached game board template or to create one with your family. If you choose to create your own, you will need heavy paper, things to color and draw with and your family members for ideas. Once you choose or create your template, you will decide what type of game you want to play: you can be creative and add candy to certain spaces, or things to win, you can add things like “go back 2 spaces,” “move forward 3 spaces.” Etc. Be creative with this and have fun with it! Each member will take turns rolling a die and moving their piece forward in the game. The winner is determined by who lands on END/FINISH first.



Friday- Project: FUNKY FAMILY SPOON PUPPETS
Materials: Plastic or wooden spoons, permanent marker, glue (hot glue gun would work

best for this, ribbon, yarn string, felt or material to use for clothes, and scissors.

As a family you will sit together and create the members of your family using the above- mentioned materials. You can even include your family pets, neighbors, close friends, or whoever is important to you. Once you have completed making each member, you can use them as puppets. Your family can write a play and act it out. Use your imagination with this activity and have fun with it as there are no limits.



SEND PROJECT PICTURES TO: amanda@morganpartnership.org 😊 OR Amanda.knepper@k12.wv.us

Please Access PositiveValuesNetwork.com for more links, videos, and art projects.

I hope you have a great weekend!! If you have a fun idea, please let me know so that I can incorporate them into another fun activity for your family!

Thank you for your participation, Ms. Mandi Knepper, MSW-intern

Each member takes a turn making a line to connect two dots. Whoever draws the last line to close a box will enter their first initial into that box. When finished, you will count the number of boxes you made (initials) and whoever has the most boxes wins!

🎨"2021 Family Art Therapy Week 14" EMPATY/EMPATÍA with Ms. Mandi, BSW🎨

2021- FAMILY ART-THERAPY WEEK 14

This weeks projects are going to be related to the Positive Action Word of the Week- EMPATHY

Is the ability to understand and share the feelings of

another person.

Your projects can be uploaded and emailed to me at: amanda.knepper@k12.wv.us OR amanda@morganpartnership.org

Please check the links on PositiveValuesNetwork.com for other art therapy projects and Positive Action videos.

Monday- Project: FAMILY EMPATHY X-RAY

Today your family will be making an X-ray of what your feelings look like on the inside when you do something negative to someone else then compare it to when you are empathetic and kind to that same person. How do you apologize when you have hurt someone’s feelings? How do you make things right with that person again?

Materials your family will need: Each member of your family will need a large piece of white paper, something to color/draw with and each other to brainstorm ideas.

Please hold a conversation with your family to discuss why it is so important to be EMPATHETIC to other people’s feelings. How does it make you feel when people do not treat you kindly? Then talk about how you feel when people are kind to you and how it makes you feel on the inside when you are kind to others.

Important Take Away Message: “Treat Others How You Wish to be Treated”



Tuesday- Project: FAMILY EMPATHY BRACELET
Today your family will be using pipe cleaners and a variety of beads to create an

EMPATHY bracelet.

Materials you will need: Pipe cleaners, beads of different colors and kids, paper and something to write with and your family to brainstorm with.

Arrange your beads by color, size, shape or however your family would like to separate them. Choose what each color represents to your family. Make a chart as shown below to describe what they mean and why they are important to your family to include on your bracelet. For example: why is it important to be “happy, brave, strong, kind, empathetic etc.?” You can make your list as long as you would like. Once you have created your list, add your beads to your bracelet, one at a time. You can choose to add a few or fill the entire pipe cleaner or to use a few, while leaving some of the pipe cleaner exposed. Lastly, when you have your bracelet completed, choose a special person to give it to. What was their reaction? Why do you think they had this reaction? Discuss how it made you feel to gift something you made to your special person and how their reaction made you feel.




Wednesday- Project: EMPATHY SHOES

Today with our families we are going to think about how we would feel to be in someone elses shoes. How would you feel if you were that person? How would your day be? How would your schedule change? What grades would you have in school? Who would be your friends? Where would you live and how would you live?

Materials needed for this activity: Paper (or print the template attached), markers, crayons, colored pencils and something to write with.

Always show EMPATHY and kindness when interacting with someone. Some people are more fortunate than others and some are very unfortunate. These facts should never be a reason for treating someone differently than how you would want to be treated. Talk to your family about what you are grateful for.

Cut out the shoe template below (you can choose one or draw your own.) You are going to think about a person in your life and put yourself in their shoes. This means you will think about how your life would be, to be that person. You will write on your shoe I can put myself in someone elses shoe when _______and fill in the blank. Each member of your family should do this. This activity should be eye-opening and help you to understand and appreciate what you have. Talk with your family about what you chose to write on your shoes. It should also make you more mindful, helpful and kind to others.




Thursday- Project: EMPATHETIC THOUGHTS and SELF ESTEEM BOOSTERS!!! Today we are going to be making a family poster that will boost each others self-esteem by

being empathetic.

Materials you will need: A large piece of white paper, some paint and markers or colored pencils.

Your family will brainstorm to come up with a positive title that will go in the center of your paper. Then your family members will each paint the palm of one hand and place it onto the paper making a handprint. (Note: Leave some space between each hand so comments can be added by other members of the family). Once you allow the handprint to dry, each member of your family will use colored pencils or markers to write positive words or phrases, that describe that person, next to each handprint.

Lastly, you will read the comments together. How did it make you feel to read and see the positive comments your family members wrote to you?

You can display your poster in your home as a reminder that you love and care for one another, even on hard and difficult days.



Friday- Project: UPLIFTING PAINTED ROCKS!
Today we will be painting rocks to place around your home and community. When

someone finds them with your uplifting messages, it will brighten their day!

Your family will take a nature walk to find small, smooth rocks, wash them and allow them to completely dry.

Once they are dry, you will need a clean surface, an old towel or something to lay the rocks on while you paint them, paints of different colors, and small paint brushes. Each member of your family should have a few rocks to decorate and access to the materials.

On each rock, you will think of an uplifting message and picture to paint.

When your rocks are completed and dry, your family can go together in your community and place them around for others to find.

Thank you for your participation, Ms. Mandi
