At OMO, we believe that every stain represents an important experience - mud stains are the stamp of adventure, grass stains are the sign of exploration and fruit stains are the aftermath of discovery. Encourage your kids to get messy with our fun activities for happy, healthy, confident kids. We'll be there to sort out the dirty clothes afterwards.
How would you feel?
This activity will help your child express how they would feel in a good and a bad situation. It will help them understand their emotions and self.
What you will need:
What to do:
Think of a few emotional scenarios. Write the different scenarios on a piece of paper, then wrap or tie the paper to some sticks or stones. (e.g. how would your child feel if you make a birthday cake or how does your child feel in the dark).
Hide the scenario objects in some sand, you can do this outside, or you could fill a tray with sand as well. Blindfold your little one and let them get dirty by searching for the scenarios in the sand, one at a time.
Help start a conversation with your child by talking about how the scenarios make them feel. Ask your child to identify the emotions in each situation and get them to make a face to show the emotion. Tell them how it would make you (the parent) feel.
