Engage your kids with this printable resource. This resource sneakily teaches your child the expressions and body language that reflect the emotions while they colour.
This is a particularly useful resource if your young person has difficulty reading other people’s emotions. #aspergers #autism
So, I left this in my daughters room (she was 6 1/2 at the time) and a couple days later come in to see this.
This is achieving a lot of things:
- enhances her ability to read emotions
- it’s providing a ‘mindful/in the moment’ experience of colouring when feeling yucky
- its externalizing emotions onto another object which makes it clearer and less intense
- it gave her a chance to write a truth coach or insight to help her comfort or reassure herself in the moment when a parent wasn’t there to do so
