  • Happiness Recipe Worksheet – Have children fill out and discuss their recipes
  • Relaxation – Become the animal from your happiness worksheet. Take some time to explore where this animal lives, what is the weather like, or does the animal live indoors, what kind of food does your animal eat, what kind of noise does your animal make? What does your animal smell like? Is your animal big, little, medium-sized? How does your animal play? As the animal begins to wander off in the distance, you remain listening to the beat of your own heart and start to wiggle fingers and toes. Reach the arms overhead and stretch out. Roll to one side then come up to a seated position.
