Put this heart faces invitation to play activity together, and let your kids create heart faces! I will surely keep them busy for a while.
We are joining today in the series A-Z of Indoor Activities by Crafty Kids at Home. Find 26 awesome ideas for when you have to keep the kids entertained indoors!
For this H is for Heart Faces activity, I simply set out a heart-shaped tray(you could use a cardboard heart too) and some bits and pieces. Some heart-shaped objects, pompoms, gems, pebbles etc.
I asked them to create faces and they jumped at the invitation to play! (This was set out for my(then) 5.5-year-old and 6.5-year-old cousin.)
Creativity is the main learning objective here, although knowledge of facial features is used. Of course, fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination(picking up the small pieces and placing them where you want them) are practiced too.
The kids realized when you place a heart for a mouth upside down, it looks sad. Perfect opportunity to discuss feelings too!
A fun, heart faces invitation to play activity that can be done indoors and is open-ended to encourage creativity!

Thanks so much for taking part in our A-Z of Indoor Activities. This is such a fun activity to do indoors. I like the way it can be used as a tool to discuss emotions as well. I love your cute heart tray by the ay. I can’t wait to have a go at this with my own kids.
