These Emotion Faces may help kids explain how they feel when it is difficult for them to express themselves verbally. Moms and Teachers may find this a useful tool during stressful times for kids.
Trivia: Recent research has suggested that the ability to successfully process negative emotions and thoughts is not only healthy, but key to mental health.
White Card stock or heavy paper
Print and cut out Emotion Faces.
Glue to Craft sticks.
Have the child select the face that most identifies how he or she is feeling and encourage them to talk about what makes them feel that way.
Then have them select the face that they would like to be.
If you want to make it interactive, have a sheet of the emotion faces printed out and have the child cut out the one he or she identifies with. The participation in the craft may help them to feel more comfortable talking about themselves.
