Hello, Heart! Experience and feel your emotions by becoming a heart fairy!

Everyone’s heart is unique to him or her.
The heart is filled with many profound and mysterious emotions.

The “Hello, Heart!” exhibition is a play experience-based exhibition with the theme of heart that
aims to promote children’s sensitivity development and understanding of their own emotions.
The concept of a “heart fairy” enables children to imagine things that are invisible to them
(the heart and mind), feel and express a variety of emotions, and grow up to become individuals who
are able to perceive and be considerate of the emotions of both themselves and others.

At the exhibition, children can enjoy diverse types of psychological and emotional experiences
(Hello, Heart Fairy!, What Feeling?, Heart Garden, Emotion Atelier; etc.) through play,
art appreciation, and digital media-based methods of expression.
Enjoy the special experience of your child learning more about human emotions through this
creative and emotional exhibition.

In what ways will the exhibit help my child?

  • Physical Development Children engage in activities related to self-expression (drawing, pasting, fitting and/or inserting blocks or pieces, etc.) that assist them with their fine motor skill development. They also get to try sensory activities that help them fully experience and express their emotions.
  • Cognitive Development This exhibition helps children understand and distinguish between emotional situations and their characteristics. Children learn about the diverse ways they can verbally express the many types of emotions they have and are encouraged to express their emotions creatively.
  • Emotional Development Children’s sensitivity can be developed through diverse emotional experiences and expression of these emotions. This exhibition helps children develop the capacity to be considerate of others and understand others on an emotional level.

Mom and Dad!

Help your child take an interest in the abstractness
of emotions and express what he or she is feeling emotionally.

  • 01

    Children have their own minds. Watch and wait for your child from a close distance to allow him or her to become immersed in the aspects of the exhibition in which he or she is most interested. Remember, the children are the most important part of this exhibition!
  • 02

    Focus discussion on your child’s direct experiences! Listen carefully to your child’s explanation of the details of what he or she experienced emotionally. In this way, you can help your child understand and experience the full range of his or her emotions.
  • 03

    Encourage engagement in activities of interest! Watch for what your child takes an interest in and encourage him or her to engage more in that particular activity. You may find that your child has the qualities of a psychologist in the making!
  • 04

    Make sure to give lots of positive reinforcement for creative expression! Help your child understand that although the heart cannot be seen, its feelings can be expressed. Give lots of compliments to encourage your child to freely engage with his or her emotions and express them through words and drawings.
  • 05

    Help your child by asking the right questions! Help your child understand and develop sensitivity to emotions that he or she has not experienced directly by asking questions that encourage him or her to talk about them.
