The Indoor Picnic
A video about handling changes in plans.
Julia and her family have to adapt to changes all the time, and it can be especially hard on Julia.
Watch this video together with children and notice how her parents “pivoted” and thought creatively to reframe the disappointment of not being able to picnic outside. A simple prop or special activity (such as using a coat rack to represent a tree, or dad giving a private indoor concert) might go a long way next time you have to help children cope with change and build flexible thinking skills.
Of course, even when you’re outside, plans change and you have to help children make the shift right there on the spot—check out another time Julia and her family were successful in building flexibility.
