Colour Monster

The Colour Monster is all about learning about your emotions. Our little green friend is confused at the beginning of the book because he’s filled with so many emotions all at once. So his friend, and our Art Sparks group, help him sort through his feelings, assigning a colour to each one and having a special receptacle to house them.

We made climbing monsters to help us reach our jars; we decorated the jars with the different colours for each emotion, filling the jars with what made us happy, what made us sad, angry, scared and calm; we made our monsters, then we sent them off to monster school; we wrote monster letters to our monsters telling them the things that we wanted to be told in school, like study hard, make friends and it’s not okay for teachers to be mean.
