With your child recognize and identify emotions in your life. Point out different emotions in books, shows and in people in your community. It can be fun to act the emotion out. Look for people who match the feeling and cross it off. See if you can find all 9 feelings.
Print the Make Your Own Feelings template or draw one out. With your child, start exploring all the new feeling faces. Share that we all have feelings inside and that feelings like to be felt and talked about. Draw what you are feeling today on the face template.
