What To Do
  1. Ask children how they feel about waiting (in a line, for their turn, for dessert, etc.). Explain they can get better at waiting with some practice.
  2. Introduce “The Silent Stare Dare,” a patience game.
  3. Here are the rules both kids must follow:
    • You must be completely silent. You can’t make any noise.
    • You must keep your hands to yourself. No touching the other kid.
    • You can make the other kid laugh (funny faces work really well!).
  4. The kid who remains quiet the longest gets a point. (You can also add a simple prize like a coin or a sticker.)
  5. You need five points to win the game.
Discussion Questions
  • Discuss why Chelsea is so eager to get to the top of the hike. How are her feelings different from Barbie’s?
  • What happens when she searches for Peanut Butter’s missing partner, Jelly? Does she have fun? Why?
Follow-Up Activities

Mealtime manners are a good way for kids to practice patience. It works best if there are consistent rules, like waiting for everyone to sit down before starting to eat or waiting until everyone has finished their first serving before having seconds.
