Feel Better Through Creative Projects

It seems as though everywhere we go now, people are talking about what happened on September 11th. Sometimes we hear too much information and it is hard to tell what is true and what is not. It’s okay to feel mixed up, because you are not the only one feeling this way.

Creative projects can help you feel better. You can draw pictures, write poetry, tell stories, write letters to rescue workers and also write letters about your feelings. Another good way to feel better about what is happening is to talk to your parents, friends and teachers. They are there to help you and to answer your questions as best they can. You can also visit the web sites below for examples of what other kids are doing.
