Printable Emotion Faces Worksheet

Children in therapy often have a hard time healthily expressing their emotions. Emotions can be overwhelming for kids, and their ability to express what they are feeling depends on different factors.

It is not uncommon for a child in therapy to struggle with understanding, identifying, and expressing their emotions. In such cases, a visual aid helps because it offers a guide for matching expressions to emotions. Having pictures of faces that match emotions can help children relate to their emotions and learn how to identify and express their feelings healthily.

Visual aids like illustrations help children understand things that they may not be able to see in the real world. Since we cannot see our feelings, children may struggle to know what word to match with their biggest emotion. The Printable Emotion Faces worksheet helps children in therapy understand and claim their feelings healthily.
