One of the suggested ways to play is to come up with short sentences and let the children choose which emotions are appropriate for him, and then simulate the emotion on pineapple. For example, this phrase: Pineapple goes to kindergarten next year, so he feels _____ . Frightened, nervous, happy, excited? What emotion will the child choose?
There is a guide on the back of the instructions that shows you how to portray each emotion . It may be helpful to first read this guide before moving on to coming up with suggestions. 24 emotes are shown and each can be assembled on a pineapple with set details.
Parents can name an emotion, portray it on their face, and then ask the child to have the pineapple show that emotion as well. That is, you can simply test the children for their knowledge of emotions by depicting different emotions on your face, so that the children can recreate it on the pineapple.
Pineapple is double-sided so that children can impose two emotions on it at once from different angles and explore opposites .
Teaching children about emotions and how to share them with others makes it easier for them to grow up in the future.
Another activity that Learning Resources recommends is taking turns naming emotions and asking children to tune pineapple for them. The parts are easy to rearrange over and over again, so it's fun.
After the game, all the parts are conveniently stored inside the pineapple.
