These Halloween feelings activities help kids learn to identify basic emotions. The Halloween activities include a set of playdough mats and worksheets. These are a fun addition to Halloween centers in Pre-K, Preschool and Kindergarten!
I love the following activities for teaching kids basic emotions such as happy, sad, angry, scared, excited and surprised. The Frankstein clip art is SO cute!
Halloween Feelings Playdough Mats
Preparation – Start by printing and laminating the feelings playdough mats for added durability. Alternatively, you can put them inside a dry erase pocket sleeve (I ordered mine online from eBay). Next, you’ll need to grab some playdough. Finally, get an erasable marker and damp cloth. Now you’re all set to go!
How to Play – First name the feeling and write the word with an erasable marker. Then knead the playdough to create a feelings face that shows what that feeling looks like. The kids can refer to the Frankstein face in the corner if they get stuck.
Halloween Feelings Worksheet Activities
Worksheet 1 – Match the Feelings
This worksheet helps kids to identify basic emotions. First they need to look at the feeling on each Frankstein’s face. Next they have to draw a line from the face to the matching feeling. Finally they can trace the feeling word with a pencil.
Feelings Check In Worksheet
Worksheet 2 – Today I feel Worksheet
This Frankstein activity is a fun way to check how each of the kids are feeling. Start by getting them to draw how they feel on the blank face. Then they need to describe how they feel by completing the sentence “Today I feel…”. I drew the face with crayon and then lightly painted over it with water colors.
