Balloon anger activity - Also used this activity with grief for a girl who lost her grandfather. He had been in the military so she wrote a note to him, placed it in a helium balloon. Had the balloon filled and sent it into the heavens with a little ceremony. I did not believe it had that much of an impact; however, mother reported that the child talked about it for weeks afterwards.
