Make Art

Creating art is more than a way to express yourself and what you're feeling - it has been shown to boost your mental and physical well-being, and that is something we could all benefit from right now. It doesn't have to be perfect! Dance, sing, draw, paint, weave, knit, or find your own way of sharing your story.

A great way to involve your kids is to have them colour this picture or draw their own and share it. Maybe they want to send it to the Prime Minister (no postage needed), along with a message. 

Green hearts are becoming a symbol for this movement. They've been posted on MP's office windows, sent in the mail, and hung in windows. How about making your own green heart, sending it to your MP and sharing it online? You could talk your neighbours into posting green hearts along your street or on your balconies.

You could even make a video to share. 

Whatever you do, please share! Your story and your message can inspire other parents and kids, and it's important for decision-makers to hear from you. Tag @forourkidscanada on FB and we'll amplify.
