The package I have been waiting for.
I must tell you how excited I was- it was like Christmas!
I carefully opened the box lid...
Peeled back the cute little sticker...
To find that the theme this month was: "The Way I Feel."
My favorite topic!
...And there it was a magical box full of activities, creative crafts, exploration games, and a book all revolving around feelings!
I mean there was EVERYTHING...
...from a little tiny glue bottle to a pair of scissors! I never had to get up once to find something I needed.
It was ALL THERE!
In one of the "Explore" sections we found the coolest "Feeling Finder" shades.
You and your child can put them on and explore and identify how other's are feeling. As a mental health counselor working with children- I can't tell you enough the importance of teaching our kiddos to learn how to "read" the facial expressions of others. It activates the part of the brain that increases emotional intelligence and increases their empathy and self identifying their own emotions.
There was also a "Feeling Journal" where your child can track the feelings they find that day. Like if they see mommy laughing- they get to put a happy face in their journal. But watch out-if mommy is grumpy- (they go hide in the closet) then they put the mad face on.
Then, we made sock puppets and acted out many different feelings.
Playing sock puppets with one hand while trying to take photos in the other- nearly impossible. But believe me- those sock puppets Henry and Wilma followed us everywhere throughout the day.
And as if BabbaCo didn't think of everything already...they included a little gift for me.
Awwwww... I heart them.
