Crafting

Here is a collection of crafts, tutorials and ideas that can be beneficial to our Love Cupboard coordinators, or for parents who want to engage in crafts with surviving and/or subsequent children as a therapeutic way to talk about the child’s beloved sibling.  We have a listing of helpful bereavement creativity websites, which includes healing ideas such as photography and journaling, in our extensive long term resources section.
