Family and Emotions Crafts,Feelings Preschool Activities, Crafts, Games, Lessons, and Printables

New November 2011: Family and Emotions Preschool Activities, Family and Emotions Crafts.  This month's theme explores two subjects close to children's hearts: their families and their emotions. Children participate in literacy activities that help them build vocabulary and word recognition skills around topics that relate directly to their daily lives and experiences. They explore what it means to be a family and have feelings via movement, singing, drawing, writing, matching, talking, and listening. Mathematical concept activities are also included. Samples of our more than 90 family and emotions crafts, activities, crafts, games, songs, rhymes, coloring pages, and printables.

Sorting Out Emotions

What you need:

Several magazines or magazine pages
White construction paper

What you do:

Label several sheets of blank white construction paper with emotions words: happy, sad, mad, surprised, shy, worried, silly, proud, etc. Give children magazines or magazine pictures to look through for images of people that match each of the words. Let children cut-out the pictures and glue them to the appropriate pages. The pages can be made into a classroom book once they have been filled with images.

If You're Happy and You Know It Rhyme and Activity (Gross Motor Skills)


If You're Happy and You Know It
Adaptation from Original by Author Unknown

If you're happy and you know it, show a smile.
If you're happy and you know it, show a smile.
If you're happy and you know it, and you really want to show it,
If you're happy and you know it, show a smile.

Continue with additional verses for other emotions:

If you're mad and you know it, stomp your feet.
If you're surprised and you know it, say "OH MY."
If you're sad and you know it, cry BOO-HOO.
If you're silly and you know it, make a face.
If you're scared and you know it, shiver and shake.

Finish the song with: If you're happy and you know it, shout HURRAY!

(Classroom) Cookbook with Family Recipes

What you need:

One family recipe from each child (not too complex)

What you do:

Have each child bring in a special family recipe and briefly share why the recipe is special to him/her. Type up the recipes (or ask a parent volunteer to help with this job) and make space at the top, bottom, or sides of each page for drawings. Give children time to draw pictures or borders for their family recipes. Make one copy of each recipe for each child and staple them together with a cover titled “Our Family Recipes.” Let children take the cookbooks home to share with their families.
