Caitlin Martin led this sweet Easter themed craft at the Georgia Center for Child Advocacy. The students got to paint and decorate their egg and use air-dry clay to create a little creature to live inside it. We talked about safe spaces, and what makes us feel safe while we turned the eggs into cozy homes for colorful turtles, dinos, and birds- complete with soft beds and handmade clay teddy bears!
We love working with the kids from the GCCA. Their organization provides counseling, community, and support to children and families who have experienced abuse. While the kids are engaged in the Paint Love project, they often offer workshops for parents and then once everyone is finished, the groups join back together - the kids excitedly showing off their projects- and then everyone shares a meal provided by the incredible staff.
