Where are Moffle’s Feelings?
The invitation is to think about where the Moffle might feel emotions in its body. One sheet is prelabelled, simply allowing the child to choose the colour, while the second sheet encourages the child to choose the emotions & the colours. You can adapt it in other ways, such as choosing different shapes & sizes for emotions. Or you could use it as an activity sheet after reading Tippy Moffle’s Mirror together, to think about how Tippy might have been feeling at different times in the story.
Using the Moffle outline rather than an outline of their own body, can help it feel more comfortable for some children to focus on emotions. It removes the spotlight from them onto the fluffy little characters, so it reduces the emotional demand & makes it feel safer.
Conversations about how they are feeling & thinking & how this influences their behaviour, can become easier over time, if we start by exploring emotions in this visual way.
Here you can find lots of different coloured Moffles and some pictures for your children to colour.
