Some of our members have been asking us to create activities for the Mexican holiday, Day of the Dead - or Dia de los Muertos. So this year we are launching a new Day of the Dead page with some fun colouring activities and posters. More over the next couple of weeks.

Some Quotes about Feelings ...
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart” 
Helen Keller
“But feelings can't be ignored, no matter how unjust or ungrateful they seem.” 
Anne Frank
"Feelings are much like waves, we can’t stop them from coming, but we can choose which one to surf."
Jonathan Martensson
"Change your thoughts, and you can change your world."
Norman Vincent Peale
"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else: you are the one who gets burned."
I enjoyed this little song about feelings! (If you click you will be going through to YouTube).
