Teach your child about emotions by making this kiss box.
What You Need:
- 2 small boxes or containers (one for you and one for the child)
- Child- sized scissors
What To Do:
- Decorate the outside of the small boxes with paint, markers, or stickers. Label each of the boxes (e.g., “Mom’s Kiss Box” or “Joshua’s Kiss Box”).
- Make “kisses” by having your child cut out hearts (or any shape) and then write the word “kiss” on each heart. If he is not able to write it, let him draw.
- Talk about how the hearts represent kisses from each other. Take turns putting your “kisses” in the child’s box, and his “kisses” in your box. As he puts a “kiss” in his box, kiss him on the cheek or hand.
- Tell him that when he is feeling sad and missing you, he can go into his “Kiss Box” and get a kiss from you.
