In this workshop, you will be introduced to a variety of playful mind exercises that can give you a needed five-minute break, or keep you busy for hours. All are intended to engage your brain and engage you with others for maximizing the benefits of fun. Below are just a few of the dozens of activities you will experience firsthand!
