Exploring Emotions with Jack-O-Lanterns

Exploring feelings and emotions with children is powerful learning!


These investigations give us insight into how we interact with the world around us.


Often children do not have the vocabulary to explain how they feel.


By using plastic pieces on a jack-o-lantern as a means to create an array of facial expressions, children learn, discuss, and explore different feelings and emotions.


As a result, they learn how to give a voice to the many emotions they experience.
