    Don't Open The Box

    Don't Open The Box  by Caroline Picking & Edward Preston - 7 to 13 yrs - KS2, KS3  (2m 07s)

    Theme - self control, keeping a lid on the ‘Pandora’s Box’ of destructive thoughts and emotions


    Content Using the metaphor of Pandora’s Box, this song makes a strong statement about keeping nasty thoughts and words under control - for everyone’s benefit!  Obviously, it's important to share about our problems in order to process negative feelings in a controlled way, but the message of this song is that allowing anger and bitterness to spill over onto others causes those destructive emotions to spread and grow.  Punchy, assertive and with a dramatic edge, this song is strengthening and empowering for children to sing. 


    This song has a partner story in 'Assemblies Alive KS2', which contains 14 other songs and stories.
