Our Brain Food decks include fifty cards with creative challenges to engage imagination for children of all ages! Many of these activities are perfect for chilly days spent staying cozy indoors or bundled up outside, which is why we are so excited to be selling them around town this holiday season. Check out all the ways you can purchase Brain Food:
- We will be at Crafty Wonderland’s Super Colossal Holiday Sale at the Convention Center on December 13th and 14th
- Purchase your decks online at Buy Olympia
- In store at local businesses
As the winter months wear on, we could all use more light! For especially dreary days, we highly suggest Activity 8 in which you collect sources of light such as flashlights, glow in the dark items and strand lights to explore with brightness and shadow. Or, you can create your own food cart with Activity 14—check out the results on Flickr from this activity created by children and families at Art in the Pearl this August.
Brain Food is a wonderful gift for right-brain and left-brain thinkers alike to develop whole-brain thinking skills through arts integration! All sales fund The Right Brain Initiative’s arts programming in local public schools. The Brain Food deck was developed by local educators, designers and artists as a partnership between AIGA Portland Design for Good and The Right Brain Initiative. Please put Brain Food on your shopping list this holiday season!
