🧡 September Red Fox Creative Challenge 🧡

WHY PARTICIPATE IN A RED FOX CREATIVE CHALLENGE?

Sometimes creativity and mindfulness can seem out of reach. Our expectations of ourselves stretch into the realm of perfectionism...ew! That is not fun, or mindful.  In light of that, we are starting a series of creativity and mindfulness challenges to assist our Red Fox peeps to be more mindful and creative.
