Journaling can help children (and grown-ups!) reflect on and work through their feelings. Use this printable page to create a feelings journal for you and your child.
- Print out seven feelings journal pages (for one week) and put them in a folder or clip them together. You might make a cover, too.
- Help kids complete a page every day. They may need help thinking of what to draw or write. You might ask, for instance, “When you felt sad today, where did you feel it in your body?” or, “Can you draw what your feeling looks like?”
- At the end of the week, look through the journal together and talk about the different emotions children felt. End with a big hug.
