Create a Feelings Garden to unlock your superpower of Empathy!
Empathy is when you imagine how someone else is feeling and try to understand how they feel. It's like trying to put yourself in their shoes and see things from their perspective.
Empathy helps us be kind and understanding to others, and it makes people feel better when they know someone cares about them. In order to have empathy for others, we must first practice recognizing our own feelings. In this TinySuperheroes Mission, we'll do both!
What You'll Need
Step 1: Create flowers for your Feelings Garden
A Feelings Garden is made up of flowers of different feelings! Use our templates or create your very own flowers to fill your Feelings Garden.
Use items from around your home to attach your flowers to stems! (Straws, plastic silverware, pipe cleaners...)
Step 2: Arrange your Feelings Garden!
You can plant your garden can be in a vase, a bowl, or whatever you want! Be creative!
Place your Feelings Garden somewhere that your family spends time together in your home.
Step 3: Practice Empathy with your family!
Throughout the month, take time to choose the flower that matches your feeling for that moment. When we pay attention to our own feelings, we can understand better how someone else might be feeling.
Have others in your family share the flower that matches their feelings with you! Now you're really working your superpower of Empathy!
Step 4: Take & post a video or photo!
Don't forget to wear your cape! Make sure to tag us @TinySuperheroes and #EmpathyMission. Our private Facebook group is a great place to post.

"Had so much fun being creative with this mission and practicing our emotions!"
"Zoey loves flowers! And feelings! We had a lot of fun making our flowers and will practice our empathy this month!"
"Coloring and talking about the emotions as we put them in our flower pots was a fun family moment ❤️"
"Cecilia’s day is very busy with a lot of stuff that isn’t so fun. Lots of meds and treatments to get through. Expressing her feelings and frustrations is very important."
"We made fingerpaint handprint flowers and assigned an emotion to each flower. The emotions match the those on her communication device."
"We loved making the different faces as we learned all about our emotions and that it's ok to feel what we feel."
