Here at Bella Grace, we believe it is never too late to feel like a kid again. No matter how many years pass, it is always possible to revisit simpler times with sweet activities such as writing with sidewalk chalk, playing hopscotch, and making cootie catchers! Today we’re sharing a special Bella-themed cootie catcher template for you to create one of your own. Ponder questions such as, “when do you feel most free?” or “how do you add some sparkle to an off day?” and exchange responses with a friend! This darling game is a wonderful way for you and loved ones to inspire one another. See instructions and template below:
