Emojis are a current sign of the times. Never would I have thought that we would be communicating using little yellow faces with a wide range of expressions! I do admit, some of them are cute and I do use a handful of them in texts and on Facebook. And I only use a few because most of them I don’t even know what they mean! My kids definitely like them; most of my kids even have a favorite emoji and I’m sure they are going to be asking to see the emoji movie that is coming out soon.
If you and/or your kids like emojis, here is a fun project to make. These emoji bath bombs are easy to make and will have your kids looking forward to bath time!
