Play games with the cards and use the dry wipe pen on the mirror to help children recognise, practice and develop different facial expressions with the knowledge of when to use them.
Each tin has 24 cards (2 sets of 12) each illustrating different facial expressions. Play snap, pairs and games or use in story telling and after incidents or accidents to support children’s empathy and understanding of others by recognising specific emotions exhibited through facial expression. Use the pen contained in the kit to draw faces onto the plastic safety mirror and ask children to practice their own facial expressions.
The University of Bedfordshire undertook a review of the value of this kit when working with children on the autism spectrum. A copy of the review can be downloaded here.
