    Feeling Faces


    After playing the game, find your own “Feeling Faces.” Help kids look through photos on a phone, in a family album, or in a magazine. Point to different people, including kids, and name how they’re feeling. Ask kids why each person might have been feeling that way. Are there any clues in the picture? For example, “Uncle Dan was really happy because it was his birthday. He’s smiling, and you can see his cake in the picture.”
