Have fun creating your own play therapy toys for your play therapy clients. Children in play therapy love home made toys such as the dragon play therapy puppet below!
Make Your Own Play Therapy ToolsWith Creative Counseling 101
Don't spend a fortune buying play therapy tools for play therapy! It is so easy and fun to make your own.
One of the requirements for taking my play therapy or sand tray therapy class is to make your own play therapy tools. Once you open your creative mind to building your own tool for play therapy the sky is the limit!
Children will often respond more to homemade play therapy doll houses, puppet theaters, and puppets. So many children today have been bombarded with store bought items, or technology toys. Homemade play therapy tools can be a refreshing alternative that children will enjoy.
Believe me, anyone can make homemade play therapy tools. If I can do it you certainly can. So many of my play therapy graduate counseling students come to play therapy class thinking they can't make anything creative.
By the time they leave class they have build a play therapy doll house, a play therapy puppet theater, a sand tray, play therapy puppets, and more. They leave my class as a Creative Counselor and play therapist.
So let's get creative and make our own play therapy tools with the help from Creative Counseling 101.com!
If you still don't want to make your own play therapy toys check out our selection of custom made play therapy doll houses and play therapy sand trays!
Homemade Play Therapy Tools You Can Make Yourself
My wish is that you will find the benefits of play therapy either as a trained professional play therapist, or play therapy client!
I truly hope that Creative Counseling 101 can open the creative doors for your practice with clients!
