Unplug June
Unplug and Unleash Girl Power

Happy UNPLUG JUNE, girls!

This June, let’s Unplug. Join iTwixie and Unleash our Girl Power! We will become stronger, bolder, smarter and kinder.

Here’s how:
Step 1 - Spend at least 3 hours a day without your phone, computer or TV – totally UNPLUG, girls!

Step 2 - Make your bed every day.

Step 3 - Read Nancy Drew Mystery, THE SECRET OF THE WOODEN LADY by Carolyn Keene with the iTwixie Book Club

Step 4 - Volunteer 20 minutes a week to help someone or some organization.

Step 5 - Go outside! Every day,  do one of these 3 things, outside: run for 10 minutes, play catch for 20 minutes, or do 10 pushups! You choose! Feel like doing something else? Tell us!

Have fun doing these 5 things, girls! Be sure to write about how you feel on your blog, right here in the comments section or anywhere else on iTwixie. Let’s Unplug June and Unleash our Girl Power!

Together we are changing the world.

Now go UNPLUG!

If you have dry, flaky, or itchy skin, you might use a moisturizing lotion or cream. When choosing a moisturizer, pick one without a lot of colors and perfumes. Petroleum jelly can work for some kids. If you are worried about pimples, look for a moisturizer that is non-comedogenic (won’t cause pimples).

Self-Defense 101: Dealing With Mean Words
kidpower-trash-can

Self-defense can mean all kinds of things — including learning to protect your heart from hurtful name-calling!

That’s why we love the Kidpower Trash Can! It’s how our friends at Go Girls! deal with mean words at their amazing camps and it really helps.

Here’s how it works so you can practice with your friends or family:

Someone calls you ugly.
Catch the words, throw ‘em away.
Say, “I’m beYOUtiful.”

Someone says, “No one likes you.”
Catch the words, throw ‘em away.
Say, “I am so likable — and lovable, too.”

Someone says, “You’re soooo weird.”
Catch the words, throw ‘em away.
Say, “I am unique. No one else in the world is exactly like me — and that’s the way I like it.”

Try it and then tell us:
What do YOU do when someone calls you a mean name?
