Happiness Video

Does lots of stuff equal happiness? This two-minute video from Public Broadcasting Service Kids gets kids (and people of all ages) to think about happiness as it relates to stuff. The moral: "One small thing you love can make you happier than a ton of stuff."

Appropriate for 1st-3rd grades (and possibly any age!). Show the video during a Reclaim Your Holidays presentation or simply share the link in an email, on Facebook, or through a blog.
