A child in a sombrero shares his dreams with his classmates. And another group of children make dream catchers out of paper plates and colorful yarn and feathers.

Dream Workshop

The Dream Workshop version 2 is here!

Our first book Dream It! is all about finding a dream — the hardest and most important step. But we won’t leave you hanging there. With the Dream Workshop we’ll walk you through the whole process of turning dreams into reality: dreaming (goal setting and optimistic thinking), mapping (planning and perseverance) and playing (doing and overcoming obstacles).
Dream > Map > Play = Dreamaplay

Great News for Fall 2019

Once again we’ll be working with the University of Cincinnati to develop this free curriculum. We’re also proud to partner with World Vision to offer this workshop to children in need worldwide. And, once again, we’ll be able to provide evidence-based results to prove we can make dreams come true.

Workshop Overview

The workshop, previously called The Dream Club, will be a short introduction to the overall process of how to turn dreams into reality. It’s perfect for classrooms, after-school clubs, homeschooling, Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, and anybody that has about 2 hours to play some fun games to learn how to dream and make those dreams real.

Pictured above are two activities from our Dream Workshop. (We have a variety of activities to choose from.) In the first, students are encouraged to share their dream. The sharer gets to wear the coveted talking hat. In the second activity, students make dream catchers with their facilitators and talk about some of their fears about doing it.
