A Fun Craft
If you have a paper plate, crayons, tape, and a string/yarn/ribbon at home, you can make a worry catcher! It's just like a dream catcher, but it catches your worries while your awake . Also, don't worry if you don't have a hole punch...you can use a pencil to poke a hole through the plate!
