How can we help our children get to know their emotions? In a Fun Friday post we shared how we can show what emotions can look like using playdough to form facial expressions! This is a fun and engaging way to teach your children about emotions, and how they can recognise them within themselves and in others around them.
Encourage your child to show and explain how different emotions change facial features like eyebrows, eyes, and mouth.
By completing this Fun Friday tasks you can also increase your child’s language skills by having them verbally explain when they had experienced certain emotions and their fine motor skills by using their fingers to form the facial features.
How to make playdough: Mix together ½ a cup of salt, 1 cup of plain flour, 2 tablespoons of cream of tartar, 1 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of oil and a few drops of food colouring to make your own playdough!
