Learn how to do a new play therapy activity: Cereal Box Theater
New Play Therapy Activity Cereal Box Theatre
In American culture, in general women wear lots of hats. Currently, I wear more hats than at any other period in my life. However, it was not until I began to work on my play therapy cereal box theatre that I realized “how many” hats I actually wear. Too many! And I don’t think I unearthed all of them. Of course some hats are seasonal, but others are juggled day after day, week after week and …
If I had visualized all the hats I wear, I would have used a “family size” cereal box. That’s the American way; the more the better. However, when I think about my health, balance, family and last and often least, myself , I would rather use a snack size cereal box.
During our lecture in our play therapy graduate class, Dr.Stangline talked about out life being a play. Sometimes we’re so involved in our play that we never step off stage and view our character and the others who are characters in our play. I placed steps in my theatre, so I can step into the audience occasionally and evaluate my character and the part I am playing.
This assignment was helpful, because it allowed me to critically view and evaluate to some extent the busyness of my life. How did I get all of these roles and what in the world am I going to do with them? I can’t do all of these things well.
As a mother of four, I have let some roles go, but I have added others to replace them. I think I need to go out and get that snack-size cereal box today!
