Games & Activities
When upsetting events happen, children may experience a wide range of feelings. Use this game to help children identify and talk about how they feel. You may want to play the game more than once to give your child a chance to talk about different kinds of feelings.
Download and print the feelings game board. You'll need two types of games pieces, such as pennies and buttons. Take turnings putting a game piece on a tic-tac-feeling square. Share something that makes you feel that way. For example, you can say, "I was worried when I saw that there was a hurricane coming our way." After talking about the feeling, you could say, "Knowing that we were prepared made me feel better."
