How Full is Your Bucket

  • Creativity
  • Detailed Instructions/Descriptions


Carolyn Mehlomakulu always has creative resources to share. In this group she pairs the reading of a book with hands-on activities to reinforce the message. How Full is Your Bucket is based on the concept that we all have an invisible bucket we carry with us everyday. When we have positive experiences more is added to the bucket and when we have negative experiences, we loose what we already have. I wonder what happens when we have an empty bucket? Nothing left to give?
