ECHO's Happiness Hub

Welcome to ECHO’s Happiness Hub

The Happiness Hub is a place to share uplifting, interesting and fun activities, videos and stories to help make you feel calm…and happy!

This is a stressful time for many of us, managing our own and our family’s wellbeing due to the impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19). We hope our Happiness Hub will help people to find distraction and amusement and to relax at a time when we all need to do just that. 

We aim to share interactive activities, uplifting videosfun challenges and positive stories which you and your family can take part in and enjoy from the comfort of your home. We will be adding more in the coming weeks so stay tuned!

We all need to try to maintain calm and kindness to best support our children and families and navigate through this period in our lives.  

Join with us – take part and share in our activities on social media, and share what you are doing to create happiness by tagging us @echoukcharity. We would love to showcase some of your activities on this page, to inspire other families.

We’ll be using the hashtag #ECHOHappinessHub so you can quickly find all the content we share, from any social media platform.  

Here are some of our favourite free, accessible resources for grown-ups and children to enjoy while at home. Let us know any others you and your family are enjoying!

How will you spread happiness?

We can all help to spread happiness to others – this could be sharing some of your artwork online, writing a message to other children and families, or making a video to share a message or activity.

Use the hashtag #ECHOHappinessHub when posting your content on social media so we can share it, or you can email it to us

Get your pens, pencils, paints, glitter and stickers out…it’s a crafty challenge!

Our Patron, Phil, (who many of you will recognise as a crafts extraordinare children’s presenter Mr Maker!) is launching our new happiness picture project and is asking everyone to:

Make a HAPPY piece of art  – a drawing of things which make you happy – or write a happy message to share with others, and put it in your window for others to see! Take a photo of it and share with us including the hashtag #ECHOHappinessHub.

We can’t wait to see your happy art & we will share a selection of them on this page and on our social media.

Let’s share some happiness!
