Note: The Emotion Faces Pattern Cards are intended to be used with the Emotion Faces pattern circles (sold separately). Additional activities with the Emotion Faces are listed on the Emotion Faces "Activities" page.

-Place one Emotion Faces Pattern Card in front of you and the set of Emotion Faces to your side. Select an Emotion Face. Find the corresponding face on the Pattern Card and place it on top of it. Repeat with the remaining faces. Remove the faces from the card from left to right. Invite the child to have a turn.

-Rotate the Pattern Cards so a different pattern is available.

-Make several Pattern Cards available, gradually increasing the number. Rotate frequently to keep the child's interest.

-Repeat, put place the Emotion Faces behind you so the child has to turn around to get them - still one at a time.

-Repeat, put place the Emotion Faces several feet away so the child has to walk to get them. (Still only place one at a time, so you have to remember which one you need and then walk to get it.)
