Inner Child Scrapbook: Make one in Play Therapy

Inner Child Scrapbook: Make one in Play Therapy

The Inner Child Scrapbook for play therapy was a lot of fun making and I really enjoyed remembering my childhood. I have not really forgetten my inner child but I know that when I moved to Georgia at age 15, I did not unpack some of my toys and still have not seen them. I had forgotten how much I had missed coloring and that is why I picked Precious Moments coloring pages for it.

For the art work page in play therapy class, I was instructed to recreate something from my past. Precious moments is a big part of my childhood because I always colored them with my Godmother. When I started to look at the pictures, feeling came back that I have not felt in a long time. It makes me realize how much fun I had coloring and I am planning on to continue that.

The Dream page contains a teacher, a car, and makeup. When I was younger I wanted to be a teacher so much because of the impact my teachers had on me when I was in school. I am happy that I am still able to work with children so I met that dream. The mustang convertable is my favorite car and I have always wanted one since I played Barbies. :) The makeup was for beauty and I love dressing up and getting pretty to go out.

The collected page contains ferbies, trolls, barbies, polly pockets, and beanie babies. These are the toys that I found fun and I collected them when I was a child. I remember polly pockets when they were small enough to fit in your pocket and beanie babies were sold on the side of the road sometimes.

This play therapy project made me realize what I find important and what I still cherish. I have not lost my inner child and I am excited to continue coloring and going to the playground in weeks to come.
