Dear Diary Party is a fun, enriching and entertaining celebration of “girlhood” with a focus on creativity, self-discovery and confidence building. Each participant will create their own personal diary and learn how journaling can be a positive tool for personal growth. Participants will create sections for their diary that focus on Who I Am (confidence building), Self-Expression (exploring my feelings), and My Hopes and Dreams for the Future (goal setting). Each section will have an expressive art activity that allows each girl to have a personalized experience and to create a customized diary that she can use over and over.
The atmosphere is lively, with upbeat music, affirming messages and positive discussion. Parties typically last between 2 and 2 ½ hours. Girls will leave the party with a diary jam packed with goodies, a swag bag and positive information to last a lifetime.
Parties are designed for Pre-teen girls age 9 – 12. We also host a Mother/Daughter party on occasion.
Why Diary (Journal) Writing and Expressive Arts?
We are experiencing a time when girls particularly need to build self-confidence and assurance in themselves. Today’s Pre-teens and teens are facing challenges that have never been faced by any other generation. Media, the perception of perfection, peer pressure, and society’s double standards takes a toll on how our girls perceive themselves and their futures. Research shows that girls’ self-esteem peaks at 9 years old and drastically plummets afterwards. 7 in 10 girls believe they are not good enough or do not measure up in some way including their looks, performance in school and relationships.
Journaling and Expressive Art activities are ideal tools to accompany a girl throughout her life’s journey. This dynamic duo can help girls to express their feelings and thoughts, communicate their desires, become more observant, know and like themselves better, appreciate their experiences, use their imaginations, creativity and natural talents, strengthen their concentration and focus, enjoy self-reflection, find their inner voice and wisdom, solve problems and become more self-reliant.
