Craft + Connect: Make a Mood Monster
Sesame Street in Communities
For children, the first step in managing emotions is learning how to identify them. Simply naming a big feeling can help them begin to understand it, and later regulate it. From making a Mood Monster to establishing daily routines, there is no shortage of opportunities for caregivers to nurture healthy emotional development in children. The resources in this bundle give caregivers simple activities to do together with children that will encourage conversations about emotions, and help children identify feelings and how they affect them.
