Our thoughtfully designed set of 20 emotions cards are based on The Zones of Regulation framework by author Leah Kuypers. Designed to help curious minds explore within, and teach them the tools to become an emotionally intelligent and well-rounded young child, able to self-regulate their emotions.
These two-sided cards have illustrated children on one side expressing different emotions, and on the back are a set of questions that will encourage your child to open up about their feelings and express them, along with appropriate activities to help self-regulate when in each state.
As a brief summary, the Zones of Regulation is an approach used to support the development of self-regulation in children. All the different ways children feel and the levels of alertness they experience are categorised into four different colour zones which are Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow. The Zones of Regulation help your child to identify what they're feeling and enable you to help guide them. Building their awareness of what zone they are in then allows you to work together to use tools to ensure they are in the appropriate zone for that moment.
Our Emotions cards are designed in Australia, and shipped worldwide. Printed locally in Sydney, on an A6 size 350gsm card stock, with rounded corners and protective matt celloglazing for durability. They also come in a calico drawstring bag for safekeeping.
