If You’re Happy and You Know It

Significance:

This activity will help your child be aware about his/her emotions at all times.

This activity is an extension of the famous nursery rhyme "If you are happy and you know it, clap your hands". Enact the following actions with corresponding emotions with your child:


If you are HAPPY and you know it, CLAP YOUR HANDS

If you are ANGRY and you know it, STOMP YOUR FEET

If you are MAD and you know it, CROSS YOUR ARMS

If you are EXCITED and you know it, JUMP UP AND DOWN

If you are SCARED and you know it, COVER YOUR FACE

If you are NERVOUS and you know it, WALK BRISKLY

If you are CONFUSED and you know it, SCRATCH YOUR HEAD

If you are SAD and you know it, PRETEND TO CRY


These are a few basic ones, you can add more emotions and actions according to the age of your child. You can guide your child to share their emotions with you through these actions in day to day life if they are too shy to talk about their emotions.
