It’s beginning to look a lot like finals time. The teens in my library are, on the whole, pretty academically motivated. They’re much more likely to be hanging out in the teen area doing homework than just hanging out. So, finals and midterms tend to really stress them out – they want to do a good job! I thought it would be nice to put together some stress relief kits for them.
Here’s what each kit contained:
Mini Hershey chocolate bar
Small piece of bubble wrap
Bag of caffeine-free tea
Card of stress relief tips
I threw all this in a snack-sized baggie. I also printed some little labels using label paper we had on hand to seal up each bag.
I swiped the bubble wrap from the ILL desk, printed the bookmark and stress relief tips, and threw in some tea I had at my desk. All I had to buy was the Hershey bars, which were about $5 for a family-sized bag. Hopefully they won’t be torn apart for the candy bars too quickly and hopefully they will help some teens feel better.
