KIDS MENU. Your parents left it to you to change out the artwork above the couch, but it’s too hard to get a picture to hang straight on a nail. You should probably just paint a mural on the wall of the dream you had last night.
KIDS MENU. What does your imaginary friend look like? Dress up exactly like them so if we ever run into them, we’ll know who it is.
(UP TO 1 MINUTE) KIDS MENU. You’re the newest superhero movie director! Your stars: your pets or your toys. Show us the commercial!
KIDS MENU. Take one line out of every book on one shelf of your bookshelf and turn it into a new story.
KIDS MENU. Find one thing in your house for every color of the rainbow and arrange them into a pretty picture.
KIDS MENU. A stick figure drawing, with real sticks. Whether that’s a video of you drawing a stick figure with sticks or a photo of a stick figure made of sticks is up to you. Rebecca N.
KIDS MENU. Create a Lucky Charms bracelet. The cereal kind.
You were careless
You were reckless and irresponsible
And you made bad choices
You defied all authority
And you ignored
The wisdom of your elders
You were provocative
You were inappropriate and promiscuous
And you broke the rules
You placed yourself in danger
Just to prove you were mature
In the most childish of ways
You courted danger and it found you
You were asking for it
You were not asking for it
You trusted and danger was thrust upon you
You were trusting of adults
Who made you believe you were mature
When you were just a child
You explored boundaries
You tested the limits of appropriate behavior
And an adult broke the rules
You were trusting of those in authority
Just as you were taught, feeling safe
In the presence of your elders
He was careless of your innocence
He was reckless and irresponsible
And he did bad things
There was fault
There was shameful behavior
And none of it was yours
Speaking of some things you still can’t tell people, there’s something you still haven’t been able to tell yourself. Write a poem of self-acceptance, looking directly at an issue you’ve long kept buried or ignored. Use the poem as an opportunity to forgive yourself and accept your all-too-human flaws. (This is still a shameless plug.)

Jensen Ackles thinks he’s such a tough guy now that he’s Soldier Boy, but we know he’s just a big softie. Prove it: create a portrait of Jensen as Soldier Boy, all out of Skittles Gummies. Post publicly on social media and tag @Skittles, @TheBoysTV, and #GISH.
