Heart Art with our friends at Oakland’s MOCHA was a blast! We were pumped to do arts and crafts with such a creative crew. As part of our Know Yourself, Love Yourself initiative celebrating the release of Dr. Bonyfide Presents: Bones of the Rib Cage and Spine we did a mix of anatomy-focused and self-esteem activities with the kids.
Highlights include when attendee Elijah found his scaphoid bone (one of the eight bones of the wrist known collectively as the carpals) and when our education expert, Joanne da Luz, read aloud to an excited group of little learners.
As our workbooks delve deeper into the body to cover bones that can’t be traced on the page like your trusty phalanges can, we’ve introduced a bigger cast of characters to help illustrate the function of the bones. This weekend, kids got to hear Ruby Rib’s backstory and learn what motivated her to want to protect the hearts of the ones she loves.
Be sure to follow us on social media (@knowyourselfoak) or here on our blog for news of any upcoming events. You can also look forward to us sharing a printable of the “What’s Inside Your Heart” self-esteem craft activity we created for this event.
