Song Information

“What color is your heart today?” This question is the perfect starting point for a conversation about the current feelings a child is experiencing. Teaching them a vocabulary appropriate for the feelings they are a part o and helping them identify these will also promote a healthy communication of emotions. Using art to be able to communicate their thoughts and feelings to adults gives us a starting off point for learning, problem solving and supporting them.
