🧡 October 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.

Create a rubbing. Using crayon lying flat (on it's side and paper), lay paper over texture and rub the crayon across the paper. See how many textures you can find.
Walk in nature. Be mindful. Be present. Nothing else matters right now. This walk is just for you. Breathe and appreciate the sights. Create a drawing or a collage inspired by this mindful moment.
Capture a moment with the people you love... or just experience a moment and feel the joy. Journal about your gratefulness later.
Create a picture of your favourite food
Three, one minute sketches of three different things you see in the room you are currently in. (3 quick sketches in total)
Go to the closest window and look outside, take four square breathes.
