Free Printable LEGO "Today I Feel" Emotions Chart

We are constantly working on emotions with my son with autism and hyperlexia and, honestly, my four year old needs extra practice too since he thinks people can only ever be happy or angry and nothing else. So I made this free printable LEGO "Today I feel" emotions chart to work on identifying, recognizing, and talking about emotions.

Free Printable Visual LEGO Emotions Chart for Kids

We use this chart to work on speech as well since I prompt them to read the sentence out loud. Sometimes I will ask them, "How are you feeling today?" before the select a head for the LEGO man. I always ask them to explain why they picked the emotion they picked. I explain more below.

Here's what you'll need to make this visual LEGO emotions chart:

Print off the LEGO chart, either in full color or in black and white. I only have a black and white printer so I couldn't print it in color. Cut the LEGO heads into cards. Laminate. Cut the LEGO heads into cards. Add a Velcro dot to the top of the headless body. Then add Velcro dots to the back of each LEGO head.

Your child can add one of the six different LEGO heads to the LEGO man's body. The emotions include scared, angry, happy, sad, excited, and surprised.

We've been doing this every morning. I like to encourage my kids to pick a LEGO head and then read the complete sentence out loud. So if they pick the happy head, then they will say, "Today I feel happy." I usually ask a follow up why question, especially for J since WH questions are difficult for him due to his hyperlexia. So yes, I use this LEGO emotions chart as a speech tool for my son and it's definitely working!

  4. Hi Dyan! Love this resource. I was wondering if you had put any thought to creating a "girl" Lego version.
