A teacher brought balloons to school, asked the children to blowthem up, and then write the names on them. She then asked the children to toss the balloons into the hallway while she mixed them up from one end of the corridor to the other. She gave the children five minutes to find the balloon with their name on it. The children ran around, frantically looking for their balloon, but after time ran out, nobody could found their own balloon.
So then, the teacher told the children to take the balloon closest to them and find (call out) the child whose name was on it. ln less than 2 minutes, everyone had their own balloon. Finally the teacher said: "Balloons are like happiness, you can't find it if you go looking for it on your own, but if instead everyone cares about each other, we will help each other find happiness much more quickly."
