CRATE Art Therapy’s Bug Hunt encourages kids (& kids-at-heart) to go on a quest to map out how anger can bubble to the surface and explore creative techniques to navigate those emotions. Bug Hunt will be structured like a scavenger hunt, encouraging participants to find the Bug Hunt printed sandwich boards strategically placed at key locations within the Beakerhead event. The Bug Hunt headquarters will be a unique stop in the scavenger hunt with art supplies for participants to create functional art that incorporates STEAM components to expand their emotional competence. This FREE, kid-friendly concept requires no artistic skills, just a willingness to get creative and learn body calming techniques.
