Acting out emotions can help children consider other people’s feelings and perspectives

How to play

1. Tell your child you are going to take some 'selfies' of each other making different faces (happy, sad, angry, etc).

2. When you've taken a few, go through them together. Ask your child to identify the emotion in each picture.

3. Then ask when and why your child feels that way (when do you feel sad? why?).

4. Ask how your child makes themselves feel better and overcome bad moods.
