Making a Happy or Sad Face

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.

What to do:

  1. Draw an outline of a face on a piece of paper, cardboard or a paper plate. Get your little one to find some natural items outside to decorate the face and make an emotion. They can use a stick for the nose, stones to make a mouth or maybe some leaves for the eyes, let them be creative!

  2. Start a conversation with them about the emotion they created, and you could also ask them if and when they felt the emotion.
