Everyone can have a bad day or feel sad sometimes. That’s why it’s good to know what things make you feel good so that you can help yourself get back to a happier place. In this activity you will explore those things you can do to feel good. You will also record a range of different positive and negative feelings and think about what colours you would use to describe these feelings. Next, you will create a painting to share some positivity and happiness with others.
