This week’s project is Mix and Match Emojis, this idea was sparked from my play when I was little. I loved anything mix and match whether I got to mix in match Polly Pockets or clothes for my paper dolls, babies and barbies clothes! It was my favorite!
I designed these using Easel Pro and carved them with the Inventables X-Carve. These are made on MDF, sealed with Shellac, and then I did the fine details with markers, painted them with Marigold Old Fashioned Milk Paint, and finished them with Pure Tung oil.
Teaching feelings and emotions early is something that is so important so children are able to know and name their own feelings but also recognize the feelings others are experiencing too. I plan to use these with Brooks to teach feelings and emotions. We have the board book by Slumberkins Creatures Full of Feelings by Kelly Oriard with Callie Christensen, we will use these as he gets older after reading books about feelings to help recognize and match the feelings!
