Sunny Day, Sweepin' the clouds away, On my way to where the air is sweet, Can you tell me how to get...How to get to Sesame Street... These lyrics have shaped the childhood of many since Sesame Street's debut in 1969. Since then, the iconic children's show has become a mainstay in the lives of countless families around the world. From Big Bird to Elmo, the Sesame Street characters have taught generations of families and kids how to laugh, love and care for each other. Here are 5 of the best lessons that we've learned from the Sesame Street crew over the years:
Your Imagination is a wonderful place
Daydreaming isn’t a waste of time. In fact, your imagination can unlock new ways of thinking and encourage some of your best ideas. The characters of Sesame Street are often using their imagination to take on new challenges and see adventure in even the smallest moments of everyday play. It teaches kids that there is a world of possibility if you're willing to look for it...
A positive attitude makes all the difference
Elmo knows how to laugh no matter what he faces. Sometimes, remaining positive and figuring out how to laugh can change the course of an entire day. It's that simple…
Understanding your feelings is key
Knowing how you're feeling is one thing, but understanding those feelings can be even harder. Sometimes, that means opening up to someone else, which can be scary, but the Sesame Street team shows kids that it's okay to share how you're feeling with others because, in the end, more people can be there to help you grow!
Believe in yourself and watch what happens…
Sometimes, believing in yourself can be the difference between thinking you can achieve something and actually doing it. Adulthood teaches us all to lean into self-deprecation, but Sesame Street reminds us of the importance of self-love. Confidence can take you a long way.
Learning is fun with Sesame Street!
Sesame Street reminds kids and adults alike that every day is a new lesson and it's all about how we frame those lessons and grow from each experience. Learning can be fun when you look at life as a world of open doors and new possibilities. If at first, you don't succeed… Keep exploring and try again!
