Feelings cards are a valuable tool and are used extensively when supporting children to explore their moods and emotions, strengths and vulnerabilities. Children who understand their emotions are better able to cope with them.
This set of 26 beautifully illustrated cards feature a range of emotions depicted by different animals to help children identify and understand their own feelings. Decades of therapeutic experience have been applied when designing these cards and each illustration has been thoughtfully crafted to spark curiosity, conversation and connection.
Easy to use, this pack includes many tips and ideas to engage children at home or in a professional setting.
These cards can help to:
- Recognise and understand emotions
- Develop empathy and understand feelings in others
- Recognise feelings in the body
- Discuss fears and worries
These cards have been created by registered charity KidsXpress and illustrated by an art therapist to promote discussion that will support emotional growth.
Recommended for children under 12 years of age.
About KidsXpress Established in 2005, KidsXpress sought to address the lack of services available to support children who were living with the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) relating to abuse, neglect, grief and other household dysfuntion. Through the delivery of expressive therapy and education services, KidsXpress is today leading the way in early-intervention children’s mental health services by addressing the insidious and cumulative effects of toxic stress before they become entrenched problems in adulthood.
