The Colour Version of Zentered Kids Feelings Wheel groups 24 feelings by similarities:

In line with current research in social-emotional development, we started with the 4 basic biologically-based feelings: happy, sad, scared and mad.

Based on emotional theory, we then added 20 related but more complex combinations of the 4 basic feelings. These are some of the many that develop as we grow and mature, including: excited, calm, proud, focused, loving, tired, hurt, lonely, bored, sorry, embarrassed, surprised, worried, confused, anxious, mad, frustrated, jealous, disgusted, furious and overwhelmed.

Colour was added to each feeling according to Colour Psychology:

Although not universal, we do have common emotional associations to colour. Colours in the red range of the spectrum are warm (red, orange, yellow). Warm colours generally evoke emotions from comfort to worry (yellow) to anger (red). Colours in the blue spectrum are cool (blue, green, purple). Cool colours generally evoke emotions from calm (green) to indifferent to sad (blue). As you can see, these are reflected in the Wheel.

Why Use The Feeling Wheel with Kids:

The more emotions kids can identify and name the more specific they can be about how they are feeling. According to research, a large feeling-vocabulary, used in a flexible way, leads to greater self-compassion and emotion regulation.
