Checkout the resources from the play workshop. They are here for you to use in planning your own fun event for your units or districts. Be creative and add your own flair into the design of your play workshops. 

                  A joyful heart helps healing,

         but a broken spirit dries up the bones.

Proverbs 17:22

Playing is as sacred as music and silence. Like prayer, laughter and play can be healing to the mind, body, and soul. When we play, we leave behind stressors and allow our spirit to breathe and renew.
