This bingo style five in a row pumpkin emotions game provides a fun way for kids to learn about emotions. Because of the pumpkin theme, it is good for using in the Fall, around Hallowe’en, or even Thanksgiving.
As kids roll the different emotions, they can name what they are. They can then think of a time when they may have felt that emotion themselves. This will help children be able to better identify their feelings.
Pumpkin Emotions Game:
Two to four people can play this game at one time.
- printed game cube and game sheets (you can download those sheets here)
- glue or tape
- markers, pencil crayons, or crayons
- orange buttons, beads, or bingo dabbers to use as place markers (or you can colour them in)
- Print the pages. Print as many game sheets as needed for the number of people playing.
- Colour the game die (optional).
- Assemble the game die with instructions (provided on the die page).
- Colour in the “Free Space.”
- Roll the die.
- Look at the emotion the die landed on. Give an example of when you feel that emotion. For example, if you roll “excited,” you can say, “I feel excited when I am going to go swimming!”
- After you call out your example, colour in or cover the corresponding spot on your board. The first person to cover or colour five pictures in a row, wins.
Some children may find it more challenging than others to think of scenarios when they have felt a particular emotion. It’s okay for you to step in and give them verbal prompts to help them or to share one of your own examples.
