I was looking around on The Continuum Family’s website and saw this poster. What a neat idea to have a game or poster that helps children recognise feelings. I don’t know about you but I spend enough time asking my child how someone seems to feel and what they might be needing, that a game or poster like this could be useful to have around.
I was thinking of just purchasing this poster when I thought it might actually be fun to make our own poster. Lily is no stranger to drama, nor having her picture taken so why not?
Here’s a few of what we came up with: (scroll over to see what she’s feeling)
I thought about waiting to do this until I got my new fancy pants camera but then I just couldn’t wait. What’s that? You didn’t know about the new fancy pants camera that I’m getting? I have been remiss since having those awful hives, which unhappily are still with me after 13 days. I am in fact getting this camera very soon.
So, we plan to print these pictures out and make our own Empathy Poster. Perhaps I can find a nice frame to put them all in. Maybe I’ll wait to do even that much until I snap these shots again with my new camera.
