Sometimes, we know that things are bothering us, but it can feel hard to put it into words. So, when someone asks ‘what is bothering you?’ the question feels impossible. Using activities that help children to talk, and explore their emotions in safe spaces helps children to develop their self-awareness and emotional literacy.
So, a feelings house can be a great activity to support older children and young people to explore their feelings in different ways.
All you need to do is
- Print off a copy of the feelings house (download here)
- Sit down together in a quiet space
- Make sure you have plenty of time
- Work your way through each section of the house together
- Don’t forget – take your time, you might complete it in two sections
