Learning how to distinguish our emotions is no easy task, especially as a young child. In our early stages of life, sometimes we are unable to give a name to how we really feel. Through this activity we will try to give names to all of the emotions that your child may feel on a daily basis. Beginning by making putty stuffed balloons, we will then breakdown different scenarios and draw how our facial expressions might respond onto the balloons. Once we have the balloons made, we will then throw them into one of two bins. One bin is for positive/constructive emotions, and the other is negative/deconstructive emotions. This activity not only allows for children to learn how to express themselves, it also plays on advancing their motor skills. Learning how to deal with the ups and downs of life can be fun. Especially when we make it into a game!
As parents, it's important to make sure that activities are age appropriate and that allergies or medical conditions are communicated as you see fit.
