It's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst...

Get a spoon and take it in turns to remove spoonfuls of the flour. Whoever makes the jelly baby fall has to eat the jelly baby without using their hands. This does get a bit messy. You might want a vacuum cleaner at the ready or play outdoors.
"Although we may not be able to make synchronicities happen, we can create environments that foster their occurrence.
