This Art Therapy activity allows children to learn about their emotions by identifying what is inside, and expressing it.
I use this activity to allow children to express emotions in a concrete way.
Using color and symbols as a tool for encouraging the management and expression of emotion through creative process.
Pack includes: 32 symbols cards, 2 different jar style cards, instructions, suggested books list.
Instructions for Emotional Art Activity Part 2-
Note: During the process of associating color with emotion, don’t suggest a specific color.
I suggested purple for disappointment, ONLY because we learned through previous activities.
During the 1st week, we read books and discussed.
During the 2nd week, we read again and did the intro activity.
During the 3rd week, we read another book, and did Part 1.
