Shake those blues away
Emotion regulation involves recognising, managing and expressing emotions in adaptive ways, and allows children to learn, socialise and engage in daily activities. Supporting children to identify emotions and communicate how they are feeling helps build their resilience and coping skills. AllPlay has partnered with Humphrey B. Bear, a honey-loving bear who, like every kid (and many grown-ups), loves exploring, creating, playing, learning, and giving anything a go, to develop music videos about feeling sad, calm and angry that can help children understand these emotions and recognise them in themselves and others.
Humphrey is a friend to everyone and can turn a frown upside-down with this cheery and catchy song which uses a series of movements to get children grooving and shaking their blues away. Get your “air guitars” ready and join in or create some moves of your own!
