Studies show that when you cultivate your preschooler’s social-emotional skills, it can result in not only less aggression and anxiety on your child’s part, but your child will become a better social problem solver. The best way to start is by naming feelings. These colorful, illustrative Feelings Flashcards depicting 40 different emotions make it easy.
Each large, sturdy card has two opposing feelings — for example, brave on one side and scared on the other. When preschoolers learn how to use language to express their feelings, they are laying a foundation for future success in emotional intelligence.
Feelings Flashcards have rounded edges and store easily in a beautifully decorated, hinged box.
Size: 5-1/2 x 6-7/8 x 1-1/2 in

review by The Learning Momma
”These flashcards are super fun and colorful. Each flashcard has a feeling on each side, almost always antonyms of one another such as “bored/busy.” They give so much to discuss and explore with each card.”Read the Review
I have mixed feelings about these cards. I really appreciate that the two sided cards are used to show inverse emotions: happy/sad, proud/ashamed, etc. However, some of the images are hard to discern (a pig in a bathtub... comfortable?) and others seem redundant. Do we need happy, cheerful, and delighted?
The artwork is colorful and playful. We use them both as flash cards and conversation starters to talk about the emotions and ways to handle them. My three year old son really enjoys looking through these with me each week and sometime asks to play with them by himself.
If your child struggles to identify emotions this is for you. I can't tell you how much this has helped my son grow. He is better at seeing how his sister's feel and reacting appropriately now.
These adorable feelings cards are of good quality and really helped our little one begin to learn different emotions especially ones that were a little harder for her to comprehend. I like that 2 emotions that are opposites are printed on each card makes associating them a lot easier for little ones.
We really like these flashcards - my boys have them all memorized but it's nice to read over them and talk to them about what's going on in the picture and I also find myself reading other books and wanting to describe something and I'll reference them back to these flashcards. I am very happy we got these.
We use these as a conversation starter and talk about why the card people feel that way, have we ever felt that emotion, and what would make us feel like that, etc.
