Butterfly Boxes (appropriate for all ages) help you or someone you love find inspiration and strength during their personal journey with cancer. Each Butterfly Box contains art or writing materials and self-guided instructions that encourage self expression through creativity, mindfulness and play.
CREATIVITY Butterfly Box:
Clay Work (Available Jan 1 – Feb 10)
Clay, like pain, can be worked and reworked into something entirely new. Clay work helps individuals to reclaim the self by awakening creativity and healing.
Watercolor (Available Feb 11 – Mar 20)
Watercolor painting involves being in the flow, using water to change the saturation of a painted surface. Allowing oneself to experiment with the process of watercolor promotes energy.
Zen Collage (Available Mar 21 – Apr 30)
Collage can be a meditative and relaxing method of piecing together imagery with bits and pieces of color, shape and pattern. Working with parts to create a whole, helps increase focus and self confidence.
MINDFULNESS Butterfly Box:
Story Preserves (Available Jan 1 – Feb 10)
Taking a moment to reframe and document the meaningful chapters of your life story brings renewed perspective to where you are on your current journey.
Restorative Journaling (Available Feb 11 – Mar 20)
Writing down your thoughts in response to journal prompts gives shape to emotions such as frustration, sadness, hopefulness and anger.
Ink Dreamscapes (Available Mar 21 – Apr 30)
The imperfect process of mark-making with brush and ink fosters renewed self-awareness and living in the moment.
PLAY Butterfly Box:
Pieces and Parts Tinkering (Available Jan 1 – Feb 10)
Thoughtfully arranging found objects and materials from nature engages the senses and promotes flexible thinking, helping one to respond rather than react to obstacles that may come their way.

Focusing on completing tiny succulent plant environments purifies one’s home environment and provides new growth to tend.
