Creative Activities That Inspire Children & Teens to Soar

We know that children have a driving need to expand their awareness and to discover new possibilities at every turn of their developmental process.

However, that natural curiosity often gets shrouded by stress,
expectations, demands, bullying, peer pressure, low self-esteem and
self-worth, and an overall disconnection from life’s joy.

With a clear mission to inspire children and teens to soar, the resiliency-based
StoryPlay® Child & Teen Enrichment Program, provides proven creative
and experiential tools that will show them how to overcome obstacles, enhance emotional literacy, and improve problem-solving skills.
