Card hacks for… Stones…have feelings too

Facilitator: Alison Krusec

For some children, talking about feelings can be difficult. But what if there was a cast of stony-faced characters who could help them find their voice and explore their feelings in a fun and relaxed way.

Each card has a colourful, illustrated character on the front and three words on the back, making Stones…have feelings too! perfect for supporting children to build a vocabulary around their emotions and body signals.

In this 30-minute FREE online session we will explore:

  • how to use the cards to help children build their emotional literacy
  • the role of humour as a catalyst for change
  • the many situations and settings in which Stones …have feelings too! can be useful
  • some simple questions that can get the conversation flowing
  • how to create a safe environment for talking about feelings
  • feedback and ideas other practitioners have shared with us.

This session is ideal for counsellors, primary teachers and early childhood educators, mental health professionals, foster carers and anyone who works with, or cares for, children.
