Kids feel big things but they may not understand how to express how they feel. Use this early learning pumpkin emotions activity to help your child understand and express their emotions.
Dealing with emotions can be challenging, especially for children. They may experience difficult circumstances and struggle to express their feelings about it.
This emotion activity uses pumpkins (not jack-o-lanterns) to demonstrate common emotions. It prints in several pages that can be assembled into a book.
Discuss the twelve emotions depicted on the pumpkin page with your child. Explain what each one means and how it is different from the others.
You can use the “Today I feel…” page each day before or during your lessons. This will help your child learn to evaluate their emotions and make choices accordingly.
The subsequent pages can be used to draw in or cut and paste the pumpkin emotions. You may want to print a few copies of the emotions page.
The final page is a game you can play with your child. You’ll need to laminate the pumpkin and gather a die and a dry erase marker.
