Give a selection of colours and feelings ask the children to match them in the way they feel they want to or have coloured paper around the room, say a feeling and children respond by standing next to that colour. Try these: CALM / ANGRY / THOUGHTFUL / WISE / TROUBLED / EXCITED / ANXIOUS / SORRY / GLAD / SAD / FRIENDLY / JEALOUS / YOUNG / GROWING / COSY / SCARED
