Last week for Joy School I taught the joy of being silly. Taught – ha – just worked really hard not to stop the natural silliness three years olds embrace. We did lots of engaging activities: making balloons stick on the wall, blowing mountains of bubbles out of a cup with a straw, painting with shaving cream, watching popcorn pop all over the floor, singing silly songs, and playing silly games. I loved observing the kids as they experienced new things and saw pure delight on their faces. Honestly, I discovered silliness is rather exhausting for me. It was a good reminder I need to work on my silliness muscles.
