• Let the child list the things they worry about (if they have a zillion worries then have them categorize them).

• Next have them divide these worries into at least three categories such as "worry a lot about this;" "sometimes worry about this;" and "worry a little bit about this."

• Divide the circle into ratios of how much space each worry takes up—yes, this takes a little math and forethought.

• If the child chooses, they can decorate the "pizza" while talking about their thoughts on how their worries were proportioned (e.g. "Mom being in the hospital is a very big slice of pizza—it takes up almost the whole pie").

Take this activity one step further by allowing the child to use stuffed animals or puppets to act out eating up this worry pizza—what happens to them when they eat it?
