In the book, T he Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend, Beekle goes on a long, and sometimes scary, adventure to find his friend. He imagines all the things that his friend might be doing and decides to be brave and go find them on his own! Beekle didn’t wait around for his friend to find him, he took initiative and did what he had to do to find his friend. Sometimes in life, we have to take the initiative and use our courage to do frightening, but good, things. We all have people, memories, or things that help us feel brave. What makes you feel brave? In this activity, you will make a crown, just like Beekle’s, and decorate it with all the things that give you courage and make you feel brave.
