To practice visual recognition skills and match facial expressions
This activity not only encourages children to think about emotional expressions, but also practice visual recognition skills. Children also manipulate hexagonal shapes to match images of facial expressions. Let’s play.
What you’ll need
- Chanafavors Printables
How to Set Up
- Print out the Chanafavors printable file.
- Cut out all small and large hexagons and 6 mood triangles.
- Print additional copies if needed.
How to play
- Place a large hexagon and point your finger to the triangle in front of your child. Talk about that facial expression. Invite your child to find similar mood triangles and place them accordingly to create a hexagon similar to the example.
- Place a small hexagon and point your finger to the triangle in front of your child. Talk about that facial expression. Pick another hexagon and rotate the hexagon to find the triangle with the same emotion. Show how to place matching triangles next to each other. Repeat the steps on the remaining triangles.
- For more challenges, try timing the completion.
