When a pet dies, for some people, a good way of coping with their grief is to express themselves through art. It's well known that creative activities can help distract you and take your mind off stress, even if it's only for a little while. For some people, art can also be relaxing to the point of being in a meditative state.
The idea of our Critter Crafts is for you to have a little fun and focus on doing something. You don't have to be an artist, either. Just follow the directions and you'll be amazed at what you can do and how healing it can be!
Critter Crafts is updated every month so be sure to check back. Or, better yet, why not sign up for our weekly Newsletter to get all the latest updates, event listings, and offers we have?
April Critter Craft: Pet-Themed Journal
This month's craft is a Pet-Themed Journal. It's a 2-paw project, which means the degree of difficulty is easy. All you have to do to learn how to make it is download the directions here.
* Don't forget! Children always need to be supervised when doing a Critter Craft and your working surface always needs to be protected.
