Kid's Co-op: 5 Activities to Develop Your Child's Emotional Intelligence

Lots of great ideas at last week's Kid's Co-op!  Here are just five of them:

1.  PlayDrMom shares her favorite books about feelings.

2. Create a DIY emotions board book with help from the tutorial at Love, Play, Learn.

3.  Play a fun emotion matching game like the one at B-Inspired Mama.

4.  I love this idea for teaching children to think of others' feelings as well as their own.  Check out the bags of joy over at the Kids Activities Blog.

5.  And if all else fails, what better lesson than to teach your kids that when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade?  Find the recipe at A Childhood List.

And check out a great way to focus on emotional intelligence using a character in a book with this easy comprehension activity.

I've pinned these to the Kid's Co-op Pinterest Board (and you can find a featured button on my buttons page if you'd like one.)

Thanks so much to everybody who linked up last week!  Can't wait to see what you've got this week!

  2. Thank you so much for featuring my emotions board book. This is a great list.
