Hello Spartans! We hope you enjoyed your 3-day weekend! It can be stressful during these very difficult times and you may find yourself feeling frustrated and/or unmotivated. Please watch this video and take a moment to meditate for some motivation and a more optimistic mindset! We hope that you enjoy this week’s Mindful Monday! Be sure to join next week’s meeting, where we will be doing a fun Kahoot.

Hello Spartans! We hope you enjoyed this week’s Mindful Monday! Here is a recap on what we learned during lunch:

Paper Stars

Learn how to make paper stars in less than a minute with a piece of paper and a pair of scissors! 

Step 1: Cut a strip from your piece of paper. It can be whatever width you choose, but make sure to have a long strip of paper that is around 10 inches. Keep in mind that the wider the strip of paper, the larger your star will be.

Step 2: Loop one end of your paper strip. It should look like a ribbon. Then, pull in the extra short piece through the loop and flatten it. It should look like a pentagon-shaped knot.

Step 3: Tuck in the excess paper into the pentagon, or fold it over. Use the rest of the paper to fold over the pentagon base. Once there is not enough paper to continue folding, tuck it into one of the pockets of the soon-to-be paper star.

Step 4: Pinch each of the five corners to create a three-dimensional star!

You can also check out our previous blog post on paper stars here.

Here is the video we showed during Mindful Monday:

 

 

Paper Cranes

Unfortunately, we did not have enough time to show the second origami tutorial, but we hope that you try it out using this video! 

 

 

We hope to see you next week! We will be learning and practicing breathing exercises. More information will be released soon.
