I like this activity, because it helps kids talk about feelings. Kids get to draw a picture of what their face looks like when they are happy. Maybe it will help them notice just what they feel and how they look when they are feeling happy.
Then, they get to draw something that makes them feel happy. Older kids might be able to list a few things that make them feel happy and maybe write a story about one of them.
This may seem like it is really easy. But, my author told me that sometimes even adults have trouble knowing what makes them feel happy. So, it is better to teach kids to know what makes them feel happy when they are younger. That way they don't feel so confused about it when they grow up.
What makes you feel happy?
Here are the questions:
1. Explore my site. Tell me or my author if you there is a good way to get the word out about me, my site, my books, and my message about feelings. I think my author calls that kind of stuff things like... "promotion"... "marketing"... "branding"....Um! But...those words are too big for me!
2. How many colors do I turn in my book? (If you don't know... you might have to buy one. I am not sure if my author has ever told anyone or not. But... it will be worth it!)
If you would rather answer the questions on my author's other blogs, you can find them here:
