A virtual assembly on Children's Mental Health Day
The Squiggle Game
This activity helps children to express themselves non-verbally.
Write a couple of feelings on some cards such as, happily, angrily, sadly, annoyingly, carefully. Put the cards into a hat and ask your child to choose a card. They need to mime the feeling and incorporate it into an action. You and the rest of the family have guess what they are doing and what feeling they are expressing!
Allow your child to make music using items around the house such as a tin box or spoons to name a few. Allow them to have fun and most of all allow them to EXPRESS THEMSELVES!
