All About Me



*Use a mirror to explore looking at your child's face. Identify different parts of their face. Ask you child can you find your nose, mouth, eyes?

*Encourage your child to draw or paint self-portraits (pictures of your child's face) encouraging them to remember all of the key features such as eyes, nose, mouth, hair.

*Talk to your child about different emotions and feelings and reassure them that it is ok if we are not always happy. Ask your child what makes them feel happy, excited, sad or cross. You may need to share with your child what makes you feel these different emotions.

*Sing action songs such as Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes or If You're Happy and You Know It (clap your hands, stamp your feet, nod your head.)
