Weekly Themes #46 Friendship | Amistad for 3-5 year olds

A friend is someone who stands up for you, who makes you laugh, and who shares their things with you.  A friend makes your sad days happier and pulls your feet back down when your head is in the clouds.  Friends are someone who helps you when you are in need, and you would help them anytime they call.
