Pass out a metal spoon to each person and tell them to imagine the spoon is filled with something (an object) that they like, such as ice cream, toys, candy, money, etc.

Ask children to look into the inside of the spoon, like a mirror. Tell them that this represents having the things that we want.

Tell them to try to smile in the spoon. Point out that no matter how they turn the spoon, their smile will always be upside down!

Explain that objects (like food, candy, toys, and money), won’t ever make us truly happy. They only make us happy for a little while, and then we need more.

We can try and try to be happy with our stuff (just like we can try turning our reflection around), but it won’t work!
