Today's Self-Care Tip:

Give away books you've already read and talk about them with your friends.  Readers need other readers.  Need a simpler idea?  Go place one of the books above on hold at your library.


Play Idea:  Fold a paper into thirds.  Assign each person a third of the paper to draw on secretly.  The top third is for the head, the middle for the torso, and the bottom for legs and feet.  Here's a blog post about with photos.
