We have been talking about our feelings and also looking at photos of ourselves and our facial features. We have been singing songs, making faces on the light table, enjoying stories on the theme and having lots of discussions.
This playdough activity provided a great platform for play and language and was easy to set up.
I drew a variety of faces on cardboard and laminated them. I drew happy, sad, angry and surprised expressions on the faces of boys, girls, men and women.
I added buttons, rolling pins, garlic presses and cutting utensils.
I loved the way the children related to the faces, gave the characters names and invented scenarios to reflect their expressions.
