Have your child color a cartoon alien (you do one, too!) and then assist them in cutting it out. Adhere the alien to the popsicle stick. Explain to your child why respecting another’s personal space is important, and introduce concepts like “gentle hands” to get someone’s attention instead of shouting or hitting. Explain to them that the aliens you’ve made together are you and your child’s “space invaders.” Model for your child that when you put your “space invader” up, that means you need a moment to regroup, and have them do the same. Explain the concept of giving people their own “bubble” of space to play in.
