Inspired by a video (credits: hello, Wonderful) we made our funny papercraft this morning.
What a fun way to talk about emotions!Video and idea by: https://www.instagram.com/etkinlik_anneleri

It took me about 15 mins to prepare it.
We had some fun changing the expressions and talk through a few recent events when we have had similar expressions.
We will play some more with it and I will see how it goes.
My 6-year-old son prefers to play with the funny happy expressions, shying away from the angry faces.
It makes me wonder- do I avoid negative feelings? Do I avoid admitting I have negative feelings?
I try to stay with him and reflect his sadness, anger, frustrations. I also try to be open and admit when I am feeling big negative feelings. I definitely need more practice, I have been raised to avoid negative emotions, no matter what.
