Emotions Dice

 
To make Emotion Dice, was really an excuse to use the new wood burner that has been waiting since Christmas to come out of it's package! http://howsweeteritis.blogspot.ca/2011/09/emotional-animals-game-teach-kids-about.html
I copied faces from a previous project, 'Emotion Rocks' http://mamadrool.blogspot.ca/2012/06/emotion-rocks.html and combined it with another dice game we made, 'Animal Action Dice' http://mamadrool.blogspot.ca/2015/03/animal-action-dice.html.
Before we played, I had a trial run, to see if O & C could recognize the emotions of each face of the die.
C calls the Worried Face pictured above, "wivering (quivering) worm" !

 Angry Frog!
It was serious entertainment to watch as O & C rolled the two die (Animal, Emotions) and acted them out!
After a few rounds of documenting their actions with pictures, they wanted to solely see themselves on camera, making faces.

 
 
 

Then they tried a few combinations as a duo!





We tackle emotions projects on a fairly regular basis. A few samplers below!
