The Mood Meter is a fun craft to build and gives kids a chance to gauge how they’re feeling at any given moment, and over time. Your mood meter can be as simple or as involved as you want and is a nice alternative to a traditional emotion chart. We borrowed this wonderful idea from Education.com and encourage you to check out their website for more great ideas.
What Do You Need to Make a Mood Meter
Use your creativity to make your own personal mood meter. The following represents what we did:
- White poster board.
- Compass (helpful for getting your circle right)
- Construction Paper (you can match the emotions you are including in your charge, but you will definitely want a darker color to use for the arrow).
- A metal brad/fastener.
- Markers or crayons
