Do your little ones need help understanding feelings and emotions? When my daughter was very young it was clear that she had sensory issues and self control was definitely an issue. We often said “use your words” to try and get her to communicate how she was feeling. Way back then I never thought to browse google for free resources and printables that would help her express her feelings and emotions.
There are so many free resources on emotions that can be helpful for young children who struggle to express their feelings and communicate what they are feeling. We have listed out sever free printables on feelings and emotions along with activities that can help your kids communicate their feelings.
Sometimes emotions can be really overwhelming for little ones to understand and sometimes you can have kids that are overly emotional, and need help getting themselves in check. That’s where using fun printables and games come in handy!
You can have lots of fun playing and reading books while learning about how to handle your feelings and emotions. You can learn how to help children work through feelings and emotions and it can radically change your homeschool.
There are ways to help your children gain self-control and to become aware of their triggers. Once we learned what our daughter’s triggers were, we were better equipped to help her work through her feelings and emotions in a more rational way.
