Build a Flower Emotions Match

Emotions can be a lot for kids to handle. They’re a big part of life and it’s important for them to learn to recognize the emotions they may feel and what these emotions may look like. It also gives you an opportunity to discuss with your kids how to deal with emotions in a healthy way.

Kids will pick up a flower petal and look at the animal’s emotional expression. They can place the flower petal around the flower center that represents the emotion.

During the learning experience, you will learn how the kids think about emotions. You can engage in conversation with them by asking questions like; “How do you think this animal is currently feeling? Is it angry or scared? How would you say you’re feeling right now?…”

Some emotions might have similar emotional expressions (e.g. happy & excited, worried & confused, …), so there can be more than one flower center that could match the picture.

Included emotional expressions/faces are: angry, confused, worried, embarrassed, happy, sad, surprised and excited.

  1. Do you have an answer key? I purchased this for my preschool and some of the faces are so similar that I can’t figure out which emotion is which.

    1. Hi Abbi!
      If you look at the second page in PDF – first column is: happy, excited, confused and sad. The second column are: embarrassed, surprised, worried/scared and angry. The worried expressions are the ones with squiggle mouths/eyebrows down and the confused ones would be the diagonal mouth ones (animals). But since some expressions are so similar, like worried and confused, they can be used for both emotions, you could use them interchangeably, it doesn’t matter that much. 🙂 Thank you for your order! If there’s anything else I can help you with, please let me know!

      Best regards, Sandra
