A Rainbow Kind of Day

To children experiencing homelessness, the littlest things can trigger the biggest feelings.

Together with children, watch the video and ask questions to get them talking:

  • Why did the color purple make Lily so sad?
  • What did Sofia explain to Lily? How did that make Lily feel?
  • What did Elmo tell Lily that made her feel a little better?
  • Why did Elmo bring her lily stickers (what are lilies a symbol of)? Why is that so important to Lily?

You might finish by coloring a rainbow together, or just looking around to find something in each color of the rainbow.
