She's big enough for you to explain to her that what she is doing is wrong.
Do it when she's NOT having a fit. Explain that she has the best tantrums you've ever seen, and such wonderful tantrums deserve a special place, and pick a place she must go to have them, that is safe, like her bed.
Then, the next time she fits, tell her to go to her tantrum place. Without the attention a tantrum causes, it will soon burn itself out.
A child doesn't really gain control over her emotions until the age of maybe... five. Read "the new parent power" by John Rosemond.
