Description

Now with all new illustrations, the second edition of these bestselling cards continues to provide a tool to initiate discussion and reflection around feelings. The cards span a whole range of emotions- angry, happy, depressed, excited, confused- and can be used to get people talking about feelings in a fun and non-judgemental way.

Blobs are a way to discuss issues in a deep, meaningful way and yet they can be understood by adults and children alike. People of all ages can relate to these appealing Blob characters; even young children can recognise when they start to feel like these 'funny people'.

The accompanying activity cards suggest several different ways of using the cards with individuals or groups; including how to relate the feelings shown on the cards to ourselves and others, identify positive and negative feelings and act out these feelings.

48 colour flashcards, with guidance for use.
