How are you feeling today?! It can be such a complex question for adults as well as children.
Meet my Emotion Monsters!
Not only are these guys great fun, they can be used for interpreting, learning to name and to understand different feelings.
Useful in so many various settings for encouraging children and adults to describe how they feel sometimes or how they would like to feel..
Talking about our feelings is the basis of our emotional literacy.
Everyone interprets feelings differently, and everyone’s feelings are valid.
So how are you feeling today? And do you like my monsters?!
Story stones are a unique and beautiful way to encourage and expand the imagination of young minds.
You can also use them for story telling, building vocabulary and general play. Add them in with another set! They really can be used by parents, professionals and children in so many different ways.
This is what makes your own Story Stones Rock!!
The half Emotion Monster set includes 11 story stones and a white velvet pouch to keep them safe.
“Sometimes we recognise a feeling but simply do not have the word or the means to describe it. These emotion monster stones have proved to be a playful and tactile therapeutic resource to facilitate emotional literacy. I’ve used them with children, young people and families to enable them to think about different feelings in different situations, to help recognise others may see the same thing in a different way as well as being a means to tell a story through emotion. For me they have been particularly useful for children who struggle to integrate different emotions and often feel out of control when they experience ‘big feelings’ . The monsters have been a fun,indirect way to help them explore the many different feelings we can have.”
