Sandtray Therapy Class: Toothpick Bridge Assignment, Mercer Summer 2013

Upon receiving the sandtray therapy class assignment to make a toothpick bridge, I had no idea where to begin. I never was never really enthusiastic about tinker toys or Legos, though my sons were.

I looked up instructions on the internet and found instructions about how to make a marshmallow-toothpick bridge. It was a lot harder than it looked. My bridge is pretty crooked and flimsy. I also read that I should have left the marshmallows out to dry for a few days before using them; they are more stable that way.

The sand tray therapy bridge I made is actually too big for my sandtray and ends up looking like a bridge to nowhere.

My poor frog is trying to get over the bridge by being up at the top, but he has nowhere to go.

Even Buzz Lightyear, who can do anything, cannot figure out how to get around this bridge.

Without meaning to, it seems that I have made a visual representation of the insurmountable obstacles that I feel exist in my life.
