“How Am I Feeling?” Hand Puppets – Set of 5
These puppets can help your child express emotions or understand (build empathy) in a relatable way.
Teaching your child about feelings may seem daunting, but the right tools can help parents and caretakers start complex conversations about emotions with their little ones. These “How Am I Feeling?” Hand Puppets provide support for exploring five big emotions that everyone experiences. Talking with your child about these feelings can decrease anxiety, promote resilience and the ability to self-regulate, and can cultivate long-term emotional health.
Let your child use the puppets to tell you how they’re feeling. Similarly, use the puppets to let your child know that you feel the same things. Teach your child the names of their emotions and then use the puppets to explore different strategies to process each emotion. Or, play act the ways that your child can respond when others express how they’re feeling. Emotions can be big, but they don’t have to be difficult.
Two different puppet ethnicities are available to choose from: African American/Black and Caucasian/White. A set includes 5 puppets, each one depicting a facial expression that correlates with one of the following emotions: Happiness, Fear/Nervousness, Anger, Embarrassment/Shame, and Sadness. These puppets comfortably fit most hand sizes so children and adults can alternate roles.
