EMOTION CRAFTS
Contributed by Kaitlyn Guenther


emotion-bots magnet craft

By attaching magnets to the different emotion-bot faces, children can switch out the expression of there emotion-bot to reflect their own emotions. This craft is a great way for children and families to incorporate regular mood check-ins into their daily routines!
 


emotion-bots paper craft

This is a fun and interactive craft that helps children explore their emotions by choosing the emotion of their robot! Paper crafts are classic and simple, which makes them great from young children.
 


emotion wheel activity

This is one of my favourite mental health resources because it is a great way of you understanding your emotions! The typical way of using an emotion wheel is to go from the inner circle outwards. First start by figuring out your basic emotion and then work your way out until you understand your more specific emotion.
 


mood check-in chart craft

This is a great mental health resource for any age! It is a great way to remind yourself to check-in on your emotions everyday and it's also a fun tool for tracking trends in your emotions over time. The visual and craft dimensions of this activity also make it fantastic for teaching younger kids about emotions and coping skills!
