Share this video with families and guide them through the conversations and activities suggested below.

Before Viewing: Explain to your child that sometimes we need to practice patience—when we have to wait to do or get things we want. Julia and her family came up with a way to make waiting more fun. Watch this video to see how they practice patience together.

During Viewing: Pause if your child has questions, and talk together about what you’re seeing. Ask:

  • When have you needed to be patient?
  • What can help make waiting easier or more fun?

After Viewing: Brainstorm ways to make waiting easier, such as playing I Spy, counting, telling a story, or singing a song like Julia’s family does.

Use this printable to learn the words and sing along with Julia and her family!
