DON'T FROWN! KEEP SMILE!
A simple speech therapy exercise and a celebration of International Smile Day in one.
Laughter has many positive effects on our body (relieves stress, protects against heart attacks, improves brain activity...).
ℹ️ As is well known by now throughout the world Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts created the smiley face in 1963. That image went on to become the most recognizable symbol of good will and good cheer on the planet. Harvey’s idea was that for at least one day each year, neither should we. He declared that the first Friday in October each year would henceforth be World Smile Day®. Ever since that first World Smile Day® held in 1999, it has continued every year in Smiley's hometown of Worcester, MA and around the world.
