*Challenge*: This is the final week to bring in toys, blankets, and towels for the SPCA!

Check out some of the games that Playworks uses to “help our kids become engaged citizens and thoughtful leaders by teaching them to play well with others—to be seen and heard, to have empathy for others, and to understand our interdependence”.
