Ask the children to think about their own box of ultimate happiness. Are there people in that box for whom they could do something special to show them how much they matter?
Sometimes, we can become so preoccupied with wanting things that we haven’t got that we fail to see those things that are most special and important in life. Sometimes, we feel jealous because other people have possessions that we do not have. However, although these things are lovely to have, they will not bring anyone ultimate happiness. The things that bring the most happiness to our lives usually cost little or no money. They are often things that involve special people - such as family, friends and people who care for us - or memories.
