Therapy for Kids
I use sandtray as one of the ways kids can creatively express themselves by playing. They will pick small items and miniatures to place in the sand and begin moving it around and creating an imaginary world that they can talk about and show what they are thinking and feeling.
Kids experience therapy by playing. Play is their language to express themselves, and when they are able to creatively and expressively use this language they can get past some of the tougher things they are experiencing
Kids will also express themselves through drawing, writing, or playing with items such as puppets or toys.
