Because I am a school counselor and past social worker, I am already using sand tray therapy. However, I have been using my fellow school counselor's sand tray and had never taken the time to create my own.

I am grateful for the opportunity to create my own sand tray in sand tray therapy class for play therapy. I wanted to have a more permanent sand tray than an aluminum pan so I purchased a plastic container with a lid so it would be useful for many years.

I love using the sand tray therapy and my kids love playing with the sand tray when they come to visit me as their school counselor. Often when students come to see me they are upset or have had a bad day. The sand tray takes them away from the pressures of the day and relaxes them. It serves as a stress relief and a refocus during the day. I also love to sit in the floor with my students and interact with them using the sand tray.

I wish I had this training as a past social worker. I could have used it!
