Play Therapy Mask Making Activity

The purpose of this play therapy activity is to identify the different masks we wear in different situations.

When we wear masks we are putting on a facade. Help your play therapy client identify what masks they are wearing in different situations with this play therapy activity.

play therapy mask Materials:

-Cutout of the play therapy mask below on card stock paper

-Art supplies for decoration of the play therapy mask: paint, markers, glue, glitter, scissors, feathers, fake gems, yarn, etc. (See mask cutout below or have your client create their own)

- Large popsicle stick for holding the play therapy mask to the face.

Directions:

1. Ask the client to identify one feeling that they “mask” and try to hide.

What is the feeling they use to cover up the “hidden” feeling?

Process with the client how masks build walls in relationships.

2. The client or student will decorate the play therapy mask with the identified feeling. Add the popsicle stick to the bottom of the mask.

3. After decorating the play therapy mask ask the client or student the following questions:

- What does this mask mean to you? When do you need to put the mask on?

Why do you feel you need to wear the play therapy mask?

How does it protect you?

How does it hurt you?

- Put the play therapy mask up to your face. How do you feel when you wear the mask? Now take it off. How do you feel when you take the mask off?

- Ask the client or student if they truly feel they are being true to their real self when they wear the play therapy mask.

How can they learn to take the mask off and let their real self show?
