Have you ever read the Dr. Seuss book My Many Colored Days? It’s one of my kids’ favorites. I love the way it helps kids to understand different feelings. We created a Color My Feelings project to go along with the book.
See more of my book activities for kids.
I love the book My Many Colored Days because it helps teach children about their feelings. It has a color to represent different feelings and moods.
For instance, for the color red, there is a bright red horse kicking its heels. For the color yellow, there are yellow bees buzzing. And for the color black there is an angry wolf howling. I like the thought of combining colors and moods.
These printable color my feelings pages combine colors and moods together just like the book My Many Colored Days does.
This fun little activity can be used to make a printable booklet for kids. It’s a fun about me activity for kids in preschool, kindergarten, or any elementary aged kids. It includes 12 different styles of faces with 6 girls and 6 boys, so kids can choose to make the books look like themselves, or have a variety of styles of faces.
I printed our feelings book with one face per page, but you could also print 2 per page to make it more of a booklet style (and save paper).
We drew our faces on with crayon and then water color painted over the top the color that we were representing on each face. This created a crayon-resist effect on the faces.
