Connect: Talking through our worries with friends and family
Michelle gets some great advice from Harold and gets in touch with Jo to have a chat about her worries and what she can do to help manage them. Talking about our worries with our friends, whanau or teachers can help us to feel lots better! 

Give the activities below a try:
  • Have a read of our Worried, scared or nervous Fact Sheet and have a go at Harold’s Quiz here.
  • Learn how to do a breathing exercise that can help you to feel nice and calm here.
  • Colour in a picture of Harold and his friends here.
Appreciate: Make a 'body needs' box
What does your body need to stay happy and healthy?

We need to look after our bodies so we can keep them working properly, so we can do all the neat things we want to do. 

Print out this activity to make your own body needs box. In each of the squares add one important thing your body needs to stay healthy and draw a picture of yourself doing it. Once you've filled in each of the squares cut it out and fold along the dotted lines to put your box together.

 
Nourish: Understanding ingredients

The ingredient list is a helpful way to identify exactly what is in the food we eat. It identifies all the substances used to make the food, starting with the ingredient that there is most of in the food and ending with the one there is least of.

Together as a family, download Harold's Learning Experience and work through the questions with your family here.

Check out Harold's Food Analyser to learn more about food and nutrition here.
Connect: Spot the difference
We change lots as we grow older. We look different, we act different and we like different things. But some things about us still stay the same!

Can you spot the difference if you look at a photo of yourself when you were a baby, and a photo yourself now?

Together as a family, download Harold's Learning Experience and work through the questions here.
