Encourage your students' sense of humor by putting MR. POTATO HEAD features on the wrong way. Ask your students to "fix" MR. POTATO HEAD for you, or to make his or her own "Picasso Potato".
After your students make a face on MR. POTATO HEAD, ask what feeling that face might be showing. Take turns making exaggerated emotion faces yourselves-one person shouts out a feeling and the other person makes the corresponding face. (ex: happy, sad...). Faces are a great way for kids to learn about emotions!
Supplies:-brown tag-board or cardboard-colored construction paper, felt, or foam (found in the kids' craft section of your local craft store)-masking tape-scissors-washable markers
Have your parents help with the cutting or to draw the face shapes
Cut a large potato shape from the tag-board or cardboard and draw small curves on it with marker to show the dimples

Use the markers to add details to the parts if you like
Hang the large potato on the wall or a door, wherever your parents want it hung
Put rolls of masking tape on the back of the parts
Blind fold the participants, hand them a part, spin them around, and let them go!
