On this page you will find activities to help us identify our feelings and how to manage them, how to be a good friend and to identify the behaviours that allow us to be kind to those around us. 

Print two copies of these emotion cards. They can be used two ways either for a game of snap or a matching game where all the cards are placed face down and if you turn over two of the same on your go you keep the cards.


Can you name all of the emotions on your cards as you play? If you want a real challenge can you give an example of when you feel the same emotion as on your card, for example do you feel happy when you get to play outside? 


If you are not able to print out the emotion cards you can draw your own using the ones in the link as a guide. 


Have a listen to the lovely story called the 'Colour monster' about a monster who gets his emotions a little bit mixed up. Have you ever felt like the colour monster?

The compliment game -


Sit in a circle with your family with a soft toy or bean bag something soft that you can safely throw to one another.
