First responder families, join us for an exciting school holiday program where children will learn mindfulness and art. Let’s make Glitter Meditation Jars! The children will make glitter snow globes of their ‘happy place’ and are taught mindfulness techniques to use with the snow globe to make them feel calm and happy. This wellbeing activity is also a great way to connect with local first responder families whilst your children spend time on their art project, as well as develop bonds with your own family as you encourage your kids to learn and be creative. An excellent way to gain the benefits of learning a new skill, this wellbeing activity also provides an opportunity for physical and mental stimulation which promotes self-esteem and contributes to self-identity. Art and craft can be mindful activities, allowing you to be ‘in the moment’ while creating your project and achieving a sense of accomplishment.

There is also another art/ craft class on 1st July – Make An Empathy Monster

This free wellbeing activity is for first responder families. Suitable for children aged 3 and over. Parents do not need to supervise their children but are welcome to if they wish. Fortem is currently monitoring COVID guidelines closely and may reschedule this event and notify participants accordingly.
