Bucket Fillers: This is a fantastic concept and allows children to recognise and respond to and express their emotions. 

“The bucket represents your mental and emotional self. When your bucket is full, you feel more confident, secure, calm, patient, and friendly. Your thoughts are positive and you expect positive results. When your bucket is overflowing, you experience an intense happiness that can spread to those around you. Have you ever felt better after someone gave you a friendly smile or happy grin? This is the “ripple effect” of a full bucket.”
