Making friends can feel a bit scary sometimes, but everyone feels the same!
We made this video with the help of our friends over at the charity Young Minds!
Together we’ve come up with some awesome hacks to help you out!
Visit Young Minds for help and guidance with mental health or if you just need a little support: www.youngminds.org.uk/find-help/
TELL A JOKE!
You could approach someone by telling a joke! Here’s some to get you started!What do you call a dinosaur that is sleeping? A dino-snore!How do we know that the ocean is friendly?It waves!Why are ghosts bad liars?Because you can see right through them!
SHOW OFF YOUR SKILLS!
Teach someone a cool skill or trick, like juggling, a new dance or a magic trick!They’ll want to know how to do it too!
HAVE A CHAT!
If you see someone on their own, try asking them a question!Like, “what’s your favourite film?” or “what’s your favourite food?”Questions get conversations going in no time!
Use your awesome smile to make others smile too!So show off those teeth!
This is defs the most important one!There’s millions of people out there and loads of friends to be made!
