The cognitive and emotional development of toddlers is a process that usually starts at birth and continues until they are about three years old.
It is important to note that the development of toddlers is different for each child and every toddler develops at their own pace.
The emotional development of a toddler starts with the newborn stage and progresses to the point where they are able to feel emotions such as anger, joy, fear, sadness, surprise, and happiness.
The cognitive development of a toddler can be seen in many ways including their ability to think abstractly or understand cause-and-effect relationships.

Ways to use this simple feelings chart
There are so many ways in which you can use this chart! I like to use them in a couple of ways with kids.
This poster can be printed out and hung on the wall, or it can also be used with pom poms inside a plastic protector.
I like these plastic sheet protectors from Amazon, they’re my absolute favorites! They double as dry erase mats!
Have the child note how he or she is feeling by placing a pom pom on the corresponding emotion face.

How do toddlers express their emotions?
Children learn how to express their emotions from a young age. They use their facial expressions, words, and gestures to show how they feel.
If we want children to grow up feeling comfortable with their feelings and able to express them appropriately, it is important for parents to teach them about emotions.
We can use books, songs, and games with our children to teach them about emotions.
We can also practice different ways of expressing our emotions by talking about what we are feeling in the moment or drawing pictures of the way we feel.
