I hope you download the image, let your kids create - all the while you can talk about such topics like:
-Plants, safe & poisonous
-Medicine, man made & natural
-Drugs, alcohol, chemical, abuse, recreational.
- long term side effects and consequences... because the facts are out there.
***If the government says kids can need to be educated about sex in grade one - then please EDUCATE them on drugs and making choices that can effect the rest of THEIR lives.
-Judgement, "they don't look sick" <teach them to avoid saying and why.
Or staring at someone WHO does look illl - treat them like everyone. Or help them.
-Coloring! It does not matter if you go outside the lines - little things.
-Creativity.. get it out with art rather than aggression.
-Empathy - teach them that it should not matter what anyone uses to make themselves feel better- especially if they are not harming anyone else.
-Thankful.. thankful we are in a Country where we can express ourselves & explore our options! & We have a government that cares about it's people.
The types of conversations around these bookmarks can be limitless.
*I was concerned about any children that might get asked NOT to use them (perhaps by someone at school) well, if thats the case I guess they can contact me and I will share my opinion. ;) Happily.
I am making my bookmarks today but have a busy day and week ahead.. so they might not get done today.. I will let you know when and will mail out mine with a winner of postcards drawn on FB next week.... (hint, hint)
I did have someone make the last and send me photos and her comic & little bonus is on the way with this weeks mail! See them below! It made me smile to see them! THANK YOU!
All we need is one person to do these sort of things and it keeps us artists/humans going.

*Glue coloring sheet to a thin piece of cardboard (like a cereal box) Recycle!
Squeeze out access glue with a card - like a debit card - let dry for a day.

This is my personal opinion, it just happened. lol
This can also be a time to discuss God, Faith and what you believe or do not believe.
I don't care. I am not your judge.
Believe in what makes you happy and a better human.
I do feel children that believe in something - especially themselves will succeed further and happier in this life.
