Kid’s Craft Camp: Halloween Emotion Dolls

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Canon. All opinions are 100% mine.

For our next free Craft Camp project with Canon, I wanted to design a Halloween craft that delivered a playful way to identify emotions. With all of the crazy things happening around us, I have found my emotions bouncing all over the map. So I thought it would be fun for kids to have their own Halloween emotion dolls to play with and to help them reflect on how they feel.

This craft project is a simple one, and it’s important too! Talking about your feelings — especially if you’re sad or stressed — can make you feel better. Being able to identify emotions and verbalize them is also a great skill, and by acknowledging them can we learn how to work through how we feel. 

I used our favorite witch, black cat, and ghost illustrations to make these Halloween emotion dolls. You can pick from three different skin tones for your witch, or make all three. Print the color version onto card stock paper, or we have a black and white option you can color. I used my Canon printer and the inkjet card stock.

Each paper doll also has three different faces that can simply spin around to the oval face opening. Sometimes our emotions can change throughout the day. And this way, you can quickly change your Halloween emotion dolls to match up with how you are feeling.
