The Congenital Heart Walk on 11/06/11 was a blast! Planet Heart sponsored the crafts table to entertain children. We had 5 tables of activities!!!
1. In one station, children could color in mandala books and the new Sponap book that I had just published days before!
2. In another station, children could build mandalas from trademark wooden hearts. They could imitate mandalas from the green Heart Mandala book, or freely design whatever they want.
3. In another station, children had stencils to draw. They could trace inside unique HeartMarking Sponap shapes, including the heart hand stencils for sale, they could draw inside the Power of Infinite Goodness stencil, or they could trace the trademark hearts!
4. In another station, children enjoyed the unique cookie cutters in the shapes of all the Sponaps and the HeartMark heart hands! This way, every child at the Congenital Heart Walk could walk away with a shape that could connect to make a heart with another child! These cookie cutter shapes cut the playdough in a variety of colors. This was especially popular among the age group that is too young to draw.
5. In another station, Planet Heart offered the jewelry lines that are available for sale. We had the Sponap shapes–HeartMark line, the Heart-Hand necklaces, and the Power of Infinite Goodness necklaces in sterling silver. I have to say, jewelry is a hot item!
6. In yet another station, I taught children to play strategy games similar to Connect 4 and Tetris with my Sponap pog-like game pieces.
7. Finally, the Sponap dice were a hit. These little things speak for themselves.
I enjoyed watching people interact with all the toys that I dreamed up. All of the work is available for purchase.
I am blown away by the confidence in children who walk up to the table, grab and move and interact without an attitude that the world is theirs. I wish that for everyone.
This super handsome boy gravitated to the building toys from the hearts instantly. He created a huge design and explained to me to look at it from many perspectives. He asked me to photograph it from below to show it in other 3D angles. Had he ever built anything in 3D before? He said no. So my wooden magical hearts may have showed him a hidden talent that he will hopefully pursue as a career.
Here he made a “heart sandwich!” 🙂 Yum!
Another boy, among many, who build designs with the Heart Mandalas. Because the wooden hearts are a building toy and because boys are so used to building, they are naturally drawn to these. While most would think hearts are for girls, they forget that these are a geometrical shape and that building designs is an activity boys enjoy as well. It is truly a product that’s good for everyone!
Maria is actually saying hi, not stop! This was the windiest day, but Planet Heart survived.
