Start a silly streak with this game. Player one has to get player two to smile by using facial expressions - no talking, touching or tickling allowed. When player two grins, they switch.
Keep a smile diary. Ask your child what makes her happy and jot it down with the date. Her comments might suprise you, and it will be a sweet read as her entries add up.
Play "throw the smile" with friends. Everyone sits in a circle wearing a straight face. Then take turns "wiping" a smile off and throwing it to someone else. Crack up and you're out!
Make a smile collage: Put out a stack of magazines and ask kids to cut out only pictures of smiles and then glue them to paper. See who can find the most smiles.
