Help your students become more mindful of how they feel and how their feelings affect their mood by engaging them in a fun manicure activity. Allow students to select colors that represent their mood. Students will then color the nails on the worksheet provided and answer discussion questions when they are finished. Nails can be colored with markers, colored pencils, or crayons.
Note: This activity can be modified using real nail polish to paint students' real nails. Teacher/Counselor must have a variety of colored polishes for students to select colors that match their feelings. This activity can also be done in a group session.
