Feelings awareness for toddlers.
Ages 2 to 4
Safety Warning CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
BY BERT SMETS AND THE CENTER FOR EXPERIENTIAL EDUCATION
Four endearing little animals—Hopla the rabbit, Lola the cat, Onki the pig, and Nina the bear—introduce young children to four feelings: happy, sad, angry and afraid. By thoroughly exploring these basic feelings, The Hopla Box prepares little ones for the more complex emotions they will experience as they grow. Through hands-on play, youngsters learn to recognize and express feelings (without getting upset), empathize with others, and read emotions through body language.
The Hopla Box includes:
- 16 Situation Pictures
- 12 Hardcover Storybooks
- 4 Feelings Boxes
- 4 Posters
- 16 Cardboard Cutout Characters (double-sided with plastic feet for standing)
- 4 Masks
- Feelings Wheel
- 40 Dominoes
- Instructions for 27 group activities
- Reproducible Activity Sheet
- Sturdy storage box with a handle
The plastic stands that hold up the Cardboard Cutout Characters constitute a choking hazard for children under 3 years of age. However, The Hopla Box is an excellent resource for supervised use with children as young as 2 because its nonverbal components are easy to understand.
Use these beautifully produced materials to give young children an early understanding of feelings—and a lot of fun at the same time.
