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.

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
The flashcards are nice, thick, and double sided.
We love the bright colors and especially the rounded edges.
My 2 year old loves to open/close the box and to flip through all the cards.
It does seem to help with distinguishing feelings.
These are a perfect tool for our curriculum this year and for where my 3 year old is at developmentally. Social-emotional learning is something we have been focusing on and these cards are so helpful for expanding on that. Love the illustrations too! Great colors.
I wasn’t sure about these because I didn’t really like the pictures and colors, but my kids really like them. It especially helped my two year old learn emotions. They are quite sturdy, almost like little boards, so she could easily pick them up and look at them herself before bringing them to me to go through together.
I love these cards. So do my kids. They randomly pull them out to talk about feelings. And ask about them. And talk about them. Anything that becomes a kid led discussion on recognizing feelings is a win in my book.
My daughter loved these cards she always wanted to play with them and would bust through a whole set because she had so much fun see the silly pictures. She’s still learning what all the words mean but it keeps her interested so it’s okay.
