Activity for children 0-5 years old.

Equipment needed: mirrors, pencil crayons and paper.

Sit with your child and talk about different features of your bodies, use the mirrors to explain about different features and expressions we use. Talk about how you feel and ask your child how they feel, pull different faces and say what makes you happy, sad, excited, angry, cry, laugh etc. Finish activity by drawing a picture of how you feel.

Help them to show their particular characteristics, preferences and interests and find comfort in touch and in the human face.

This activity will help to develop an understanding and awareness of themselves and helpswith personal, social and emotional development. You may find your child has picked up new words and names while they’ve been with us at the Red House.
