What stresses you out? How do you deal with problems or challenges in your life? Art’s a great way to express emotions constructively.
What events or situations make you nervous or stressed out? Sometimes it helps to talk with a grown-up about them. Art or music can also help you remain calm and feel that you can manage whatever comes up. Here’s a project to help you pinpoint the stresses in your life and begin to deal with them.
Create <EM>STRESS</EM> cards. With Crayola® Scissors, cut white paper into cards (or use index cards). Using Crayola Markers, write words and draw pictures of things that make you nervous, such as high-pressure tests, being yelled at, or performing before an audience. Assemble a collage by placing your cards all around a piece of paper that has been colored with crazy designs.
On another piece of white paper, write the word STRESS really large. Use a style that looks stressed, such as squiggly, jittery letters. Cut out the word. With a Crayola Glue Stick, attach STRESS to your paper so it pops up above your collage. Accordian fold two strips of white paper and attach one end to the center of the collage and the other end to the STRESS banner.
