My kiddo loves everything emoji, so it was no surprise when this emoji snack mix became his new all time favorite!
It couldn’t come at a better time, because the Emoji movie is coming out in theaters July 28th, 2017!
All of those emoji expressions give us parents the opportunity to talk about feelings. Everyone has feelings. They can be overwhelming and hard to understand sometimes. It seems to be even more difficult when your kiddo has ASD.
We have discovered that emoji’s have helped communication with my kiddo, J, by pointing, identifying, and mimicking each emoji emotion. We use this Emoji Card Game and go through the different emotions; happy, sad, angry, scared, crying, and more.
After we started doing this, he would identifying his feelings as he feels them throughout the day. When he starts crying, he’ll say to me through the tears, “Crying, crrryyyying!” It comes with a little animation on his face as well. I tell him I’m sorry and I want him to be happpyyyyy! Which usually makes him giggle.
Through it all, these little emoji’s are worth more than I’ve given them credit in the past. And now, there is a movie to go along with these emotional emoticons! The Emoji Movie is released on July 28th, 2017! We don’t always see movies in theaters, they have to be a certain kind of special. This movie fits that mold to a T. I cannot wait until it arrives in theaters.
