In previous posts, we have discussed how to talk to your younger kids about sexual assault appropriately.  However, if you’re looking for additional creative ideas and more fun times for your kids, this post is for you!  Kids should be talking and learning about their bodies early on, and art projects are a great way to get your kids engaged.  These projects and serve a variety of purposes ranging from simply identifying body parts to discussing boundaries and body rules.
