Being able to identify, observe and describe feelings is an empowering skill for children to develop. Being mindful of our emotions allows us to feel more in control, develop self-regulation and learn coping strategies.
These engaging mood menus and supporting resources help children learn about their feelings, and include a range of strategies and activities to help when we are feeling overwhelmed with emotions. The ECE bundle is suitable for children aged 2-5 and the 0-3 bundle for children aged 5 – 8. Whānau may also find these resources useful for supporting their children when confronting and managing challenging emotions at home.
