Play Therapy Game - Feelings Hopscotch by Stacy  

(Play Therapy Student for Play Therapy Graduate Class at Mercer University in Atlanta)

Play Therapy Game - Feelings Hopscotch Game Assignment:

Thinking about creating a play therapy game is overwhelming, but it was fun.

Elementary students often have difficulty identifying and expressing feelings. I like to do active projects with students and love to take them outside.

Materials Needed for Play Therapy Feelings Hopscotch Game:

- Paper and Markers

- Or Chalk for outside

Directions for Play Therapy Feeling Hopscotch Game:

Play Therapy Feelings Hopscotch Game incorporates both. Using sidewalk chalk draw a hopscotch pattern on the sidewalk and write a feeling inside.

Have the student throw a rock to a play therapy hopscotch game space and name a time when he/she felt the feeling written in the hopscotch space.

If it's raining outside, this play therapy game activity can be done on a piece of paper with a pebble, or a dice.

Try this fun play therapy game with clients, or school counseling students in a group, or private session. It's a great way to get play therapy clients active and get school counseling students out of the classroom moving around!

Sometimes it takes actually playing the play therapy game to work the kinks out. Try it with another counselor first so that you can make sure the game works and does not frustrate your client.
