Turn that frown upside down
Did you know it takes 22 muscles to smile compared to a huge 37 to frown.
So think, by just smiling you'll be conserving energy!!
We've been practising our faces here. I believe getting kids to play around with their facial expression can really help kids. It allows them to see emotion, show them other ways to express themselves......instead of having to rely on their voices or their fists)
Giving them the chance to see you make faces, and allowing them to pull their own faces is equally important. Sitting in front of the mirror and talking about what faces might mean what and making a game of it. It's fun and your kids can learn so much about reading reading people and conserving energy at the same time!
Here's a few of our fav's. Can you read the emotion?
