Musical Activities for Different Moods: Happy


Musical Activities for When You’re Feeling Happy

From the Activity Guide: Music & Activities for Different Moods

Check out some orchestra music that makes us happy.



Happiness Activities

We think one of the best things to do when you feel happy is to find a way to share it with others. The more happiness is shared, the greater it becomes. Check out these all-ages activities to spread happiness.


Dance Party

The easiest way to share joy through music is by having a dance party in your home. Try out a new family tradition: whenever someone yells “Dance Party”, everyone stops what they’re doing (safely of course) and participates in a family dance party, even if it’s just for 5 or 10 seconds.


Chalk Messages of Kindness

Even if you aren’t able to be with your neighbors in person, you can still brighten their days with delightfully kind chalk messages. Decorate the area in front of where you live or go on a walk and create art around your whole neighbor. Even little ones can get in on the action – they may not be able to write, but scribbling along will help them develop motor skills and balance.


Happiness Postcards

Send happiness even further than your front steps with kindness postcards. This activity is easily adapted for kids of all ages:

  • Babies and toddlers can scribble and color.
  • Preschool and early elementary-age kids can learn how to write and address and help write the note.
  • Older children can take the lead on all aspects of creating their postcard.
