Four posters to help children talk about specific emotions
Blobs are a way of communicating using two of the first languages that we learn as children – body language and feelings. Before we can speak, before we can write, we have all learned to read the signs in our parents’ faces, and appreciate being held and hugged. This means that Blobs are an all-age resource. Ian has used them in schoolwork with children as young as four who have already begun to recognise when they feel like these ‘funny people’. Blobs live in a strange world that our eyes cannot see but our heart can discern. We can learn to ‘read’ the world emotionally and identify who is walking around with a thundercloud over their lives or is like the sun bursting forth!
