DIY EMOTIONS BOARD BOOK FOR BABIES AND TODDLERS

http://www.loveplayandlearn.com



Teach your baby or toddler about emotions and get your older children involved by using them as your models to create a DIY emotions board book. I was inspired to do this brilliant idea by No Time For Flashcards

For this activity you will need
-Board book kit (I bought mine on Amazon.com)
-Scrapbook  paper or card stock
-Pictures of facial expressions
-Ruler
-Scissors
-Sharpie
-Double sided tape




Hold a photo shoot! We used Isabella's older cousins who she absolutely adores!


Have the kids model each emotion

They had a lot of fun with this, especially the silly face

Get your pictures printed.

Write out each emotion and cut it out



Measure your scrapbook paper to fit each page and cut them out

Tape the the emotions labels to the bottom of the scrapbook paper and then add the corresponding pictures



Tape the emotions pages to the blank board book

 The final product

 

 Read with your baby or toddler!

She loved looking at pictures of her cousins
 
I am the first to admit I am not very crafty, so this book is very basic. You could make it as fancy or simple as you would like. You could add stickers and embellishments to the pages if you wanted to make it look really cute!

I don't think that this would hold up to the destruction that toddlers can unleash, so I think I will be taking the individual scrapbook pages and getting them laminated. 

This is a great way to teach your baby or toddlers about emotions and empathy. While reading this book with them label the emotions and for older kids talk about a time in which they had felt that particular emotion.
