Show the children an empty white cardboard circle. Ask someone to come forward and draw a face on it:

1. Who can draw a happy face for me?

Ask your first volunteer to draw a happy face in the first cardboard circle.
Ask them a few questions about it:
- what does ‘happy’ look like?
- what is being happy? 
- what does it feel like?
- what do you do when you’re happy?
