The Big Idea: Let kids know that everyone feels bad sometimes, and that’s okay. Feelings are always changing, and kids can learn how to handle all kinds of emotions.
- Watch the video and encourage kids to name the different feelings they’ve had today. Have their feelings changed during the day? Point out that feelings change all day long, and they’re all okay.
- Ask kids what Elmo and Chris do when they feel scared, worried, or sad. Which idea would they like to try next time they have one of these feelings? What else can kids do to help themselves (hug a pet or stuffed animal, count to ten, color a picture)?
