Taste Therapy Lollipop Feelings

taste therapy

Sometimes you just need a little sugar to bring out or identify your feelings. This activity is a way to utilize taste therapy into your practice.

This fun tastey therapy activity works with clients of all ages, especially children.

Make sure you check to see if your younger clients are brushing their teeth after eating the lollipop. Taste therapy is fun, but use it sparingly and take care of your teeth.

You can also use the worksheet below to emulate a lollipop if you are not able to supply real lollipops.

Materials:

1 colorful lollipop or the worksheet below with markers

You can also create your own personalized lollipop on paper.

Directions: 1. Give your client a real lollipop or the lollipop worksheet (See Below).

2. Ask your client to identify the colors in the lollipop or lollipop worksheet.

3. Once they identify all the colors ask the client what the colors mean to them.

For example, with the color blue, you would ask “Tell me about a time you felt blue. What did that mean to you?”

Allow the client to translate each color to you and tell a time when they had feelings that matched a color in the lollipop.

4. Ask the client to write down the color and the feelings in the lollipop worksheet below.
