Butterfly Boxes

The Butterfly Box program is open to Northeast Ohio residents touched by cancer. All individuals receiving a box will be required to complete a Stewart’s Caring Place registration form if we do not have a current one on file. You will be contacted by phone or email to complete as necessary. For those in treatment or caring for a loved one, it may be difficult to attend scheduled programs, but we recognize the need to stay connected and maintain personal growth is essential. We are now offering a variety of Butterfly Boxes (appropriate for all ages) to 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.

Reserving a Butterfly Box or Collection can be done by a participant, for a participant, as a surprise from a loved one or friend, as a pay-it-forward in honor or memory of a participant, to an adult, teen or child undergoing treatment, and to caregivers and survivors.

CREATIVITY
Clay Work
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
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
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
Story Preserves
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
Writing down your thoughts in response to journal prompts gives shape to emotions such as frustration, sadness, hopefulness and anger.

Ink Dreamscapes
The imperfect process of mark-making with brush and ink fosters renewed self-awareness and living in the moment.

PLAY
Pieces and Parts Tinkering
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.

Tiny Environments
Big dreams evolve from small ideas. Focusing on completing tiny succulent plant environments purifies one’s home environment and provides new growth to tend.

Word Play
Reframe difficult life events by using humor, metaphor, and wordplay to create a new narrative for your life experiences.
