SNIFF, SNIFF (Episode P117b)
When Emily Elizabeth wakes up with a cold, Clifford does everything he can to make her feel better. He tries playing with a pop up book, playing ball, and getting her to dance. Finally he realizes that one of the best things you can do for someone who isn't feeling well doesn't feel like much at all. He goes into her room and snuggles with her, and she couldn't be happier.
Ideas to Grow On: Be a Good Friend
Children learn to identify what a good friend really is by
interacting with others that understand them and treat them kindly,
especially when they don't feel well! The following activities
- social and emotional skills

Get Well, My Friend!
Make a collage card by using construction paper folded in half.
Glue materials like fabric, notions (small buttons, rickrack,
yarn, paper cut outs, etc.) onto the front and inside of the card.
Include a message and deliver it in person!
Surprise in a Can!
Paint a small coffee can. Fill the can with candy, socks, and crayons…anything that can be squeezed in! Top with a bow and bring along a Clifford the Big Red Dog coloring book with crayons to enjoy time together with a friend.
