These emotion cards are ideal for preschoolers and kindergarteners learning about their feelings and emotions. Helping your child work through their feelings is easier with these simple cards nearby.
The first step to helping our children learn how to cope and work through their emotions is teaching them about their different feelings.
I always approach it like this: there are no good or bad feelings. They all exist, and they’re all a part of the human experience. We sometimes prefer positive feelings like happiness and excitement to negative ones, like sadness and frustration. However, embracing our children in all of their emotions is really important.
To chase certain feelings is to live an unfulfilling life, as it’s inevitable that our emotions will ebb and flow on any given day.
So, to work through our negative feelings together, we must first be able to identify and appreciate the space we’re in at any given moment.
Because we address and appreciate the negative emotions when they come, my son is now able to very clearly state what he’s feeling, and it makes my job as a parent much easier, and it helps him understand himself and get back to a more positive headspace when he’s ready.

Emotion Cards for Preschoolers
My emotion flashcards were a part of our “All About Me” unit, and even though we’ve been working on emotions for years already, they made for a great addition to our homeschool. Plus, they will get plenty of use with the younger siblings as well. Sometimes it’s harder for kids to talk about how they’re feeling, so these cards are pretty handy. You can ask which one resonates with them, and it’s a great place to start.
If nothing else, they normalize our array of emotions, and help our kids understand that everyone feels all of these things.
