Where do you Feel?
Learn more about our emotions and how we feel them in our bodies
To relate emotions to body parts, increase awareness of how we feel emotions.
- Get a partner or adult to help you. Lay down on the large blank paper, and the other person will carefully draw around you to make an outline drawing of you.
- Get an adult to help you make a “Color Key” to show which colors go with each feeling and tape it onto your outline.
- Where do you feel each feeling in your body? Draw the feeling colors (from your Color Key) onto your outline. As you work, talk about some ways we feel feelings in our bodies, for example, what feelings go with…
- Tears in your eyes
- Sweaty hands
- Butterflies in your tummy
- Prickling in your neck
- Heart beating fast
- Whooshing in ears
- Knots or pain in your tummy
- Heavy heart
- Tired eyes
- Bouncing in your legs
- Which parts of our bodies tell us about our feelings?
- How does it feel to be happy… mad… sad… afraid?
- Often we don’t notice feelings until they get very big. What would happen if we could notice the feelings in our bodies when they were small feelings?
