Here’s a good way to build yourself up so you can be bold and stand up for what’s right even when your friends disagree. A free event for kids, the Dr Martin Luther King “Content of Character” Workshop, will be held at First Calvary Baptist Church (1311 Morehead Ave) on Saturday, June 10, 10am–2pm. You can take part in activities that will encourage you to think for yourself instead of following any- and everybody. You can also choose to go to either the “Does the Music of Today Build Character?” or the “Do the Right Thing, Academics, Athletics and Character” miniworkshop after lunch. Ask your parents if you can go—it won’t cost them anything. In fact, ask your friends to go, too. Be sure to register; here’s the link: CLICK HERE. And if your folks have any questions, they can write to email@example.com. I hope you get to go!

Cool hot-glue project
Many artists and crafters use hot glue when creating works of art and household items. In this case, you can actually write with hot glue and make wearable name tags, mini-signs, and keychains. Maybe you can make some holiday gifts for family and friends! Here’s what you’ll need:
Depending on what you’re making, you might need these, too:
If you have never used these tools and materials before, ask for help. In fact, ask for help anyway. We don’t want you to get hurt.
Okay, let’s get started:
You can even start a business! Just think: It’s easy to find keychains for kids named John or Mary—but what about kids with names like Kijuan or Rashida? You can make specialized keychains and sell them! Just make sure that when you write out the name, you add a little extra glue on the end for the keychain ring. Carefully pound a small hole with the hammer and nail and then slip in the keychain ring.
Here’s the house number that I made and spray painted orange. I’m going to super-glue it to my mailbox. Have fun with this project!
