You gotta love paper plates. So many art projects come home from school , made from paper plates.
Well, here's another!
1. Draw some faces with different facial expressions on paper plates. You don't have to be an artist - look at mine.
2. Read a book about feelings. I had this one:
(I wish I had this book : The Way I Feel by Janan Cain, I thought I did, but I didn't)
3. Show the kids each paper plate, and ask what the feeling is, then ask them what makes them feel that way. Have them make their own faces too!
For example: What is something that makes you happy? Her answer: Horses
What is something that makes you sad? Her answer: Time Outs
(My 2 year old just copied everything Ri said, but no worries, she'll get there one day)
4. Then, let them pick a plate and put it on their face, and have them act out the feeling.
