Retelling the familiar story encourages development of children’s creativity and imagination. It also provides the platform to discuss fear, bravery, lying, stealing and being honest.

Feelings in a Jar uses the simple concept with each card showing a feeling or emotion. The children can name the emotion, explain when they have felt like this or play a game with a card attached to a hat for others in a group to describe. The wearer of the hat guesses what the feeling is.

Have You Filled a Bucket Today? This book uses an 'invisible bucket' that holds good thoughts and feelings. When you do something kind, you fill someone's bucket; when you do something mean remove some good thoughts and feelings. It focuses on how our social interactions positively or negatively affect others and encourages all to be kind.

Big Red feather The feather can be any colour, but red is very apt and the bigger the better!! The ability to use willpower can be developed over a period of time so that children can increase the time they are able to resist giggling and pushing it away. Good for discussions about how to resist other types of behaviour and favour more positive actions. Also useful to discuss the age-appropriate concept of consent.
