Problem solving is one of the important skills, which enables individuals to adapt to life and is associated with concepts like theory of mind, empathy and self-regulation, in their life. Problem solving is an improvable skill and should be supported as from early childhood years. The purpose of this study is to determine how children generate solutions to problems and how they express their feelings in such cases. In the study, the qualitative model and the case design were used. Eleven children were included in the study. During the application, a puppet and five problem statuses were used. The data collected as a result of one-to-one applications with the children were examined with content analysis method. As a result of the study, it was observed that the children were able to generate effective solutions including the use of empathy and self-regulation skills to the problem statuses; however, they had difficulty in naming their emotions in relation to problem statuses. The results of the study suggest that adults should emphasize emotions more and encourage children to think about their emotions.
