The Things That Make Us Happy

What makes the children and young people of Wales happy? We decided to find out.

Running a stall for three days at this year’s Urdd Eisteddfod in Cardiff Bay we had great fun meeting with a lot of you who were visiting the Maes or competing. We loved having a chat with you and telling you all about Meic.

We had a Happy Wall (Wal Hapus Meic) that we asked you to fill with the things that make you happy and we had some great results. Everyone that took part got to have a dip in the Lucky Dip as well and got to take a Meic goodie home with them.

So what were the most popular things that made you happy? Football, dancing, rugby, friends, family and cats! There were loads of other things too, so take a look at our word clouds from each of the days.
