DIY emotions flip book

With everything that’s going on in the world right now children are facing a lot of isolation and confusion. As parents we personally feel like it’s more important than ever to help our children understand their emotions and know that they are all natural. With that in mind, my son and I sat down and created this sweet little DIY emotions flip book. We had a really lovely chat about the different emotions, what they feel like and when we might feel them. He’s also since been using it in play to decide how his toys are feeling and why.

You will need

  • Coloured paper
  • Marker pens
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • An old CD to draw around

Take a second to plan what emotion faces you want to make and then select all the colours that you will need. Draw around your CD on each and then cut the circles out and fold each one in half.

Open up your circles and draw your different faces on to each one. We also added the names of each Emotion to help my son learn to recognise the words.

Once all your faces are finished, fold them back in half. Glue the faces together so that the back of the bottom half of your first face is glued to the back of the top half of your following face as you can see above.

Keep repeating this process until all of your Emotion faces are glued together one beneath the other.

Finally, cut out a slightly larger circle and wrap it around the outside of your book like a cover. Cut off any excess, decorate the front and you are finished!
