1. Playing Dress Ups
Playing dressups can be a great way to practice colors, emotions, and pretend play! You can also practice dressing for the 'ocassion'. Have the kids dress for a fancy ball, to go to work as a plumber, pretend they are a rock star and more. It's a lot of fun, can get out some much needed emotional release and teach a huge variety of concepts. I usually have my kids name the colors, textures, and styles they are wearing during dress up play. Example: green fluffy pants, orange stretchy suspenders, purple lacy dress! Have fun! Here's a previous post on dress ups as well, watch for more posts coming soon as this is one of our favorite games.
2. Puppet Shows
Puppet shows are a great way to re-play stories you are reading, act out problems you are having, or create imagination stations! Here are three great sites for getting you started playing puppets!
Last year's D for the A to Z challenge was all about getting emtions out through drawing. Check out the post here!
I hope you have fun and a little drama in your house today!
