Play Therapy Game Activity: “Positive Energy in the Air”


Goal: The goal of this play therapy activity game is to increase self-esteem, insight, communication, and trust in a small group. The play therapy group will have the opportunity to reflect about themselves and things that are important to them. Hopefully, this play therapy activity will help to develop insight.

Grades: 9th-12th

Directions for Play Therapy Game:

1. The first group member will catch the beach ball and then pick a color.
2. The group member will then read the corresponding request and respond
3. The group member will then pass it to another person. The process repeats by passing the ball to someone they never passed it to and picking a color never chosen
4. The group will end with a short process of discussing the importance of focusing on positive aspects of life and not ignoring the aspects that may need work. This group will also discuss the importance of not focusing ONLY on the negative aspects of life.


Colors for Play Therapy Game:

Yellow: Something fun you’d like to do

Red: Say something positive about your best friend

Blue: Something you’d like to improve

White: 3 words to describe yourself



P.S Improve and "to do" are mixed up on the poster.
