Activity 1: paperweight
You could use pebbles or stones for this and develop this around positive affirmations, uplifting quotes or even single words that can trigger other positive thoughts and feelings.
1. I recommend using PVA for this on both sides of the cut out text so that it wraps around the stone better.
2. Leave to dry, then PVA the whole stone again to further bind the text to the stone. You might need to experiment with this.
