Grown-up TipTeaching compassion is a difficult task. Ask your child to make a drawing or thank you card for a military hero. You can drop this drawing or card off in our art studio. We will ensure the card is safely delivered to the military heroes protecting our country. Let your child know that their drawing or card will bring a smile to the face of one of these heroes that may miss their family and friends. Compassion is an important element of social/emotional growth and development.
