Play- Self and Soul Care Saturday

 

Hi Amazing one!

When was the last time that you played? No seriously, when was it? Chances are it’s been a while!

Playing is an amazing stress reliever! Just do yourself a favor, go in with no real expectations, no results needed. Just simply play!

Play will look different for each of us in some ways I am sure, however here are some ideas.

  1. Blow bubbles… (yup, with that little wand and that messy liquid just. Play “bonus” points if you chase after or try to catch some of them!
  2. Get $5 and some kids art supplies and make a mess, explore watercolor, fingerpaint, doodle, get crayons and some paper and do rubbings of random things you find!
  3. Play with your food… feel like swirling up your ice cream, crushing up your cookies in your milk, having a mini food fight… go for it!
  4. Get some sidewalk chalk and make a hopscotch pattern or play a giant game of tic tac toe!
  5. Warm enough outside, engage in a water balloon “fight” still rainy and “funky” outside.. jump in a puddle of water or mud!
  6. Go to a thrift store and gather several crazy, out of your style items and play dress up!
  7. Read a fun book out loud in various voices.
  8. Chase your shadow, make shadow puppets, take a picture of the funniest or biggest shadow you can capture!
  9. Get on a swing, kick your feet in the sand!

This weeks prompt is What is your fun weakness?

Creative Prompt: Make a Play ( as in fun) List..

Hey you creative souls you!

Todays creative prompt is: Make a Play List I don’t mean the kind that you play on your mp3  ( though it could be part of this list..) I mean the type of things that are fun, child like, playful things , the things that are for kids, because we all to some degree!  Let yourself just have fun, no productive thoughts allowed..

A few things that are on my play list..

-Blow Bubbles

-Finger Paint

-Hopscotch

-Put on temporary tattoos

It is in playing, and only in playing, that the individual child or adult is able to be creative and to use the whole personality, and it is only in being creative that the individual discovers the self.–D.W. Winnicott

Have a Creative, Inspired , Empowered and Playful day!
