This week we focused on forgiveness so this art journal topic I tried to incorporate that into our journaling.
The art part was layering. Layering different paper on top of each other to make a picture or art. This was open, you could layer colors, 1 color in the same pile, tear it any size you want.
We talked about forgiveness and the meaning of different layers.
You could layer people you need to forgive.
Things that you need to forgive
Things that you have done that you need to ask for forgiveness for.
One of the older dragons asked if she could layer people she would like to pray for because she couldn't think of anything regarding forgiveness. It was still journaling.
Again I have found this therapeutic. As a parent there are things I hold onto that I could let go off. Putting them on paper helped. Have me place to put things that I was holding onto or that were bothering me.
For the kids I asked them to talk about forgiveness and we wrote names or things on the paper that related to what they were thinking for each layer or pile.
