New Year’s Chocolate Bridges of Hope

Having hope is that “bridge” until we get to the other side. As we set intentions for the new year, we must take action (strategies), and not just sit in hope. Smashing negative thoughts, knowing our strengths, using humor, having emotional self-control, and a growth mindset are just some of the techniques we will learn. Envisioning a better outcome for the year can be very motivating for kids. To dramatize the concept of hope, we will engineer a Hershey’s decked out Truss or Suspension chocolate candy bridge while we learn about the world’s most decadent bridges. Kids will experience a hurricane dramatization that will blow through the room to be sure their bridge is structurally sound! Participants may take their edible creation home or eat it on the spot! This workshop is truly the perfect blend of S.T.E.M. meets Life Coaching! This is a drop off class and contractual program.
