This has been one of my favorite activities to do with my girls group! It is so interesting to see what kinds of things the girls use to define a "healthy relationship".
I start out the group by talking about healthy relationships.
- What do you look for in a relationship?
- What does your ideal or "dream" relationship look like?
- What kinds of qualities will this person have?
- Is there anything you don't want in a relationship?
After a short discussion, the girls got to work on their collages. I gave them some old magazines, canvases, scissors and glue.
Here are some of the finished products:
Each girl got to present her collage to the group. It sparked a lot of discussion.
We discussed things they would want their significant other to do for them, such as cook, clean or work hard. We discussed the topic of presents and gifts. We discussed physical qualities and physical affection.
The girls in my groups always amaze me with their creativity and ideas. This was definitely a fun project!
