Elmo is Sad

Video for children on dealing with big feelings, and what to do when we're feeling sad.

Basma and Jad are playing with their animal puppets, but the fancy hat on Basma’s puppet falls off and makes her sad. Chicken interrupts with a big feelings alert – it’s their friend Elmo! Elmo has been coloring a special sunny day, but he lost his yellow crayon. Basma and Jad help him identify his feeling as “sadness” and teach him to belly breath to feel better. By helping Elmo with his sadness, Basma feels less sad too.
