- Do an experiment with children by having them smile at someone. Did they smile back? YES! For older children use a graph and see how many returns they get on their smiles.
- Make smile buttons, badges or ribbons to wear on Smile Day
- Make smile cards (like business cards) to give out to people on Smile Day
- Children can draw smiley faces on round stickers (very cheap - often used for garage sales) to hand out on Smile Day
- Have children watch them in mirrors and practice different smiles - they could draw self-portraits during this time as well
- Sing "If You're Happy and You Know It" and have children think of new things to do such as "Moo like a cow", "Hug a Friend", "Blink your Eyes", "Say hola", "Show a SMILE", etc.
- Talk about tooth care
- Books about Feelings
- Tie it in to Literacy with the letter "S"
