Design Day: FINDing CALM THROUGH CREATIVITY | An interactive workshop with Wee Society

Find calm through creativity. At a time when more and more kids are feeling stress, Wee Society has been creating tools to teach them how to embrace feelings without letting them take over, and to encourage self-expression. Join Wee Society online for mindfulness activities disguised in drawing, story-making and fun.

Recommended for ages 6–11. Participants will need a piece of scrap paper, a writing tool and their imagination.

About Wee Society 

Wee Society is an award-winning creative studio that believes you’re never to young to develop an eye for design.

With this in mind, they’ve created kids’ toys, apps, art prints and books — including Wee Hee Hee: A Collection of Pretty Funny Jokes & PicturesMe: A Compendium, Write On: My Story Journal, Be: My Mindfulness Journal (coming in November), and more. Follow them on Instagram @weesociety and find more fun stuff at
