Filling up a Wellbeing Bucket (Early Years Outdoors)

Filling up a wellbeing bucket could not be more perfect for The Muddy Puddle Teachers. We are all about wellbeing and to focus on something so important in such a simple way is lots of fun.  

Use this lesson plan to teach a lesson outside that will encourage children to pick natural items up and to pop those in their bucket.  The children will focus on being thankful of others, to take ownership of their own feelings and to spread kindness. Filling up a wellbeing bucket is a great start to any term.

Have you filled a bucket today is a popular book being used in schools.  Bucket filling and bucket dipping are popular terms used. Buy the book.
