Play is Healing: Summer Community POP-ups

Join us in 2021 for a community initiative promoting wellness and healing from the collective trauma of the pandemic. Above and Beyond Children’s Museum, Mental Health America in Sheboygan County, and the YMCA have partnered to provide playful educational opportunities developed to support our community’s overall health and well-being.

SUMMER COMMUNITY POP-UPS Bring back the fun in 2021! Join us this summer for the second phase of Play is Healing with our family focused POP-up play experiences at various participating locations throughout the county. Events include structured and unstructured play opportunities geared towards elementary students and their families. FIND OUT MORE HERE

A MINDFUL RECESS
 was created in the first phase which is a pre-recorded class series developed and taught by MHA’s Director of Wellness Rachael Haas as an expansion of their Mindful Classroom Initiative program for Sheboygan County schools. This 8-week series is broken into accessible intervals to boost brain and body health. Included in the sessions are mindfulness and fitness movements for calming and focus, balance and coordination, strength and flexibility, and finishing with gratitude while refocusing back on learning. Geared towards elementary school children – whether in the classroom or virtual – we hope to reach as many students throughout the county with your help. The videos can be shared and used according to teachers’ and parents’ schedules.

Each week was filmed at the Above and Beyond Children’s Museum throughout different exhibits as well as the different areas within the YMCA to spark curiosity and community connection. VIDEOS AVAILABLE HERE
