BuildHappy Mood Monsters
This resource has been designed for use within primary education as a specialist intervention to help children identify the range of emotions they experience, to understand how these emotions can affect them, to support the development of strategies for managing these emotions and to recognise the part they play in shaping their own future.
We use LEGO® to build resilience and engineer purposeful conversation.
The activities utilise the literal and metaphorical use of bricks and elements to promote expression, collaboration and meaningful communication. As the activities progress, children will continually explore problem solving and the value of making mistakes during active learning.
The conversations are designed to encourage the sharing of experiences and strategies for coping with difficult feelings and situations. Children are empowered through taking greater responsibility in managing their feelings and in turn developing greater self-reliance in selecting appropriate coping strategies.
