This Empowerment Poster Kit was given to my daughter for her 7th birthday. I'm so enamored by it that I had to share it with all of you in the Backyard Yoga community.
First and foremost, it's a very well-put-together craft kit. It includes a piece of cardboard to serve as the base of the poster, 10 small sheets of tissue paper in assorted colors, two glossy sheets of paper with hundreds of descriptive words pre-printed on them, one page with 4 starbursts, 3 "i am" center motifs, 13 dividing strips, a generous bottle of decoupage glue, and a foam brush. All you'll need are scissors, a ruler or straight-edge, and a pencil or pen.
The only thing that concerns me is the gender-biased language on the "descriptive words" sheet: the sheet contains words like "daughter" but not "son". Despite this, there are plenty of words to make this a great product for both girls AND boys. We all struggle with self-esteem, and this product is a great tool for EVERYONE. I even want to make my own!!
Stay tuned for more storytime moves with Backyard Yoga coming in January.
