☀️Sunny State of Mind☀️

Before the sun sets, gather blank paper and any coloring utensils you have. Find a peaceful spot like your front porch or a park and create a picture of the sunset. Within your artwork, list ten things you're grateful for at that moment. If you're both morning people, draw the sunrise!

🗺️ X Marks the Spot: A Thrilling Treasure Expedition 🏔️

Every great treasure hunt includes a map, an adventure, and an X marking the spot. Put on your explorer hat and get ready to create your own quest! First, choose the treasure. It can be money, a special note, or any knickknacks you're willing to give away. Put them into a small box or a ziplock bag for safekeeping. Then, pick a hiding spot like a park or a trail (avoid private property!) and bury the treasure. Finally, create a treasure map paving the way to the hidden goodies. Don't forget to mark the spot with an X and leave the map in a good place for someone to find!
