Identifying and Mimicing Facial Expressions with Emotion Charades

Doing emotion charadesDo your children ever find it hard to read faces?   I know that some kids, especially those in the Autism spectrum, struggle with identifying emotions that they see in others.   This is a fun activity that might help your kids learn about how their emotions are visible to others and maybe will help them practice self-control.   I know my face often shows the way I feel. This was a great preschool “drama” activity.

What we needed:

  • A big cutting board to cover our bathroom sink
  • A relatively clean bathroom mirror
  • A camera (optional: for reviewing later)

.

We practiced making happy faces, silly faces, dog faces, grumpy faces, sleepy faces, etc.   The kids had a blast!   They also had fun afterward, looking through the pictures I had taken of them and their faces.   It was fun for me to have them explain what the emotions were that they were trying to convey.emotion charadesemotion charadesemotion charades
