The Moodsters Feeling Notebook and Feelings Crayons
I have a little girl with Sensory Integration (processing) Disorder. (SPD) She is in Occupational Therapy and a couple other therapies. One of them is talking about her feelings. She asks me, everyday, after school if I am happy. Then we go through the conversation about happy and sad. What makes us happy and what makes us sad or angry. I love this little booklet and crayons. At 3, feelings are so hard to express. With this Moodster book, she can point to the colors. (which she only knows purple so this also helps with colors) She can pick the one that fits her mood and we can talk about it. I believe this would be great for children with Autism! I think that this book will help your child or the child you know, express themselves.
There are 5 Moodsters. Quigly is afraid. Lolly is loving. Coz is happy. Snorf is sad. Razzy is angry.
Some little games you can play with your kids and watch how they react are:
During a playdate, have the kids draw pictures of how they are feeling, then talk about their drawings.
When your child seems angry or frustrated, suggest they use the Moodsters Feelings Notebook and Feelings Crayons to draw a picture to show why he or she is upset. Talk about how keeping upset feelings inside can cause all kinds of aches and pains!
There are 2 other Moodsters books for you to check out.
