Design, build and decorate a bookshelf to give to children in need
BookWorx is a creative team bonding activity where teams build and decorate bookshelves. After a team brainstorming session, roles are assigned and teams begin to design, create and build a bookcase.
Half the team are responsible for producing the elaborately themed mural that forms the backdrop of the bookshelf. The other half turn the shelves into a work of art by attending a decoupage workshop and then applying the techniques. Once complete each team does a short presentation explaining the meaning behind their artwork before donating them to a local organization in need.
BookWorx creates awareness of the importance of resources in education. How all of us can do simple yet powerful things to help others. Through the power of collective giving participants uplifted in this creative shared experience.
Groups can also collect books to ensure that the bookshelves are full at the time of donation and can continue to keep them updated over time, creating lasting results & connections.
