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.
This printable PDF includes 13 pages of 48 different flower petals, 8 flower centers and stems with leaves.
TO PREP: Print out the emotions flower parts. Print them on cardstock or laminate for extra durability. Cut them out.
TO PLAY: Let your kids match petals with matching emotions to form flowers. Have fun!
