In this step-by-step video, which accompanies our Emotions Monitor Lesson Plan, we’re going to show students how to make a Feelings Dice.

As seen in the great family movie, Inside Out, we are often controlled, led or swayed by our feelings. Learning how to recognise our feelings and express them in a healthy way is an important part of growing up.

Emojis are cute, graphic representations of feelings and emotions.  In this engaging project, we use Makers Empire 3D software to design six different emojis, representing six different feelings. We then use these emojis to decorate a dice that can be rolled to display the different emotions.

We’ll then 3D print our design to create a custom Feelings Dice or Emotions Monitor.
