The emotions in children are very important for strengthen and work from childhood. It is the parents and not just the teachers who have to work with them, the parents have to teach them to to check their emotions and know how to identify them.
Empathy in them is very important, that they know how to put themselves in the place of others to feel what others feel will help them a lot in the growth and emotional formation of the child. For this there are some spell with which you can edit the different emotions.
The importance of emotions in children
Working well with emotions and empathy in children will help them a lot in social relations have during their lifetime. Most importantly, they can manage their emotions well from an early age. Parents will focus so they can identify the different ones emotionsthat they know when they are happy and when they are sad, when they are angry and when they are afraid and of course they know how to articulate all these emotions.
The best way to deal with emotions is always with fun games and activities, always in a simple way and according to the age of each child. With games, we will always improve social skills and key emotional skills.
As we have already discussed, this type of competition is based on the game they master the basic emotions very well: fear, sadness, joy, surprise, anger and disgust. Also others that are very important, such as self-control, self-image, empathy and self-esteem. People’s lives are governed by feelings and emotions, and it is vital that children regulate and analyze how to identify when they are sad or happy.
Activities to process children’s emotions
The best way to learn emotions is to know them and learn them. Crafts have become the best example to work on, but there are also activities that can be performed on a daily basis that greatly reinforce this framework.
- Reading stories. Reading to children or children who are starting to read the stories from books is the best emotional entertainment. So create experiences with their imagination and recreate emotions, where they can feel completely safe and without risk. Lectures may be interrupted to discuss what is happening to their characters and how they are feeling.
- Make a list of emotions. Each time the emotions are analyzed in a book, they can be written down in a notebook. Similarly, you can make the same list to write down what you feel throughout the day, describe it in a single word, and be able to a drawing related to emotion.
- Use music for expression. It can be played in a group to make it much more fun. A compilation is made of a different music style and must interpret an emotion or sensation. Children are supposed to stand and walk, when a song is playing they should interpret it if it sounds sad or if it makes you feel happy. Everyone has to interpret what they feel and at the end of the song an analysis is made of what everyone has been through.
One of the activities that can be used to work on emotions with the little ones at home are the Lolly Pop of emotions. To prepare them, we just need some polo sticks and some cardboard or cardboard circles in which we will paint the faces with the different emotions we feel (happiness, sadness, fear…) On the back of the faces we can put the name of the emotion it represents to also work on the literacy. At any time of the day, we can take the lollipop that represents the emotion we feel, so that later they do the same to us and explain to us why they chose it.
Crafts also serve to edit emotions
The following crafts are designed for all levels of education. Each skill should be matched to the child’s ability or ability to interpret it. They are a form of power play with their sensory skills and have to determine how it relaxes them or creates a little emotion for them to analyze.
The finger maze
This exercise is about the child having to use their finger to follow the paths of a maze (printable in this case). You have to start following a path from the beginning and try to reach the end. Inadvertently, it is a concentration skill, where the child feels relaxed and aware of how he regulates his breathing.
making sensory toys
These toys recreate their artistic side and their effect leaves them hypnotized. Because many of them are magic bottles that they can recreate with recycled plastic and where we will fill them with any small item that can semi-float, such as pom-poms, colored pipe cleaners, dice, glitter, colored chips, small beads, etc. From here we shake the bottle to observe the effect.
Another bottle that can be made is with oil. In a recycled plastic bottle, we add water and fill with oil, but without filling it completely, because you have to leave a small space. We add food coloring and let it dissolve, it only does that in the water. In this craft you can add a small effervescent tablet to simulate the appearance of lava. But if not, you can just stir and watch the oil particles move through the water without dissolving.
These crafts create a sensory moment that we have to analyze together with the children. When we shake the bottles we’ll see how things get out of handso we can recreate how is the head when we get angry?. Afterwards observe how all elements have been deposited, will give the feeling how everything comes to restto think more clearly.
