Activity 1- Body naming
I had Sweet pea lay down on the floor and I outlined her with
blue painters tape. We added eyes, nose and mouth.

Activity 4 -Paper doll
I drew a paper doll and we added a dress and hair for her to have her own
doll. We talked about the body parts of her doll. You can probably find
lots of paper dolls online. I wanted her simple. We used brown felt for hair
you could also use yarn or just crayons. She Carried this doll around and played
with her for a few days. Until I finally found her tore and battered in the play room.
Activity 5- Emotions
We talked about different kinds of emotions. I found these stamps at
oriental Trading. These emotion stamps are on sale right Now for $1.99
We thought they looked like pumpkin faces so we used orange paint and added
some leaves for a fall and emotion activitiy.
