cotton candy life coach

Feeling a little stressed out and spun up?  December 7th is National Cotton Candy Day!  Much like this sugary, sticky, webbed treat, kids often get a bit spun up at times too! Worrying and feeling anxious is on the rise and is considered one of America’s TOP health problems.  While there’s no miracle quick “fix”, this class has the potential to be a transformational kick-off to managing it and building self-worth!  Through funny and elaborate dramatizations like:  Cotton Candy Chaos, Ants at the Picnic, 1-2-3 WHACK, and more, kids will garner 9 strategic tools to use after they depart this workshop. Just for fun, we will also learn the science of cotton candy and enjoy this theme park treat.  Don’t be surprised if your child has a bit more “pep in their step” as they walk out of class.
