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.
