Mood Monster Printable
This craft can help children name and talk about their feelings.
We all have big feelings, and it is important to find ways to name those feelings together. As you color in and cut out this printable, ask questions like, “What color do you think feels like sadness? Why?” and “What kind of face do you make when you are feeling excited?”
Once you have completed the Mood Monster, encourage your child to use it to communicate her feelings with you and others. If your child is having big feelings, ask her to put the face on the Mood Monster that best shows how she feels.
