Note to parent or teacher: Here is a 20-minute 0–5 lesson plan on spreading joy and being an encouragement to others.
Listen to “Sunny Sunbeam”
Watch “Happiness Is Growing.”
Read “My Happy Sunbeam.”
Brainstorm ways in which your children can brighten others’ days. List these ideas on a large piece of paper and illustrate each idea, Place this list somewhere the children will be able to see it throughout the day. At the end of the day, talk of which ideas were implemented and the positive impact it had on your and others’ lives.
Read “Sunshine All Around.”
Read “Bright Pebbles: Drop a Little Sunshine.” Do the action at the end of the article.
Have your children pick one verse from “Crazily Cool Card Set: Love” to color and memorize.
