Childhood Home Sand Tray Therapy Activity

I had a pretty decent childhood. I am the figure that looks like a young girl. I am twelve. I loved my horses. I was a tomboy most of the time. My parents allowed me to have many animals. We had horses, birds, cats, dogs, fish, turtles and more. I have my horses positioned behind a gate so they couldn’t run away. I was in many horses shows and won ribbons and trophy’s for which I was proud.
My mom was very artistic and my dad very successful businessman. Maybe that is why I strived to be good in art and also have good business sense. They are behind me in the tray.
I also rode my bike everywhere. My favorite color was red, hence the bike. My brother was born when I was thirteen. It was an unusual experience having a baby in the house. I became his caretaker most of the time. I put him in the red wagon. Some of the time was fun and sometimes it was not.
My mom loved having parties. I remember them fondly. She went all out. We had lights, cakes, and lots of candy. We also had great festive holidays. I decorated a tree for Christmas then strung the lights throughout the tray. My mom was great about taking lots of pictures too. We have many memories to look at.
My family was Catholic. I did not care for it much. I never really learned my faith until I was much older. I did have a Bible that sat in my room. I hated confession, it was the worst.
Last, I had to face my demons. I was always fearful of the basement. My dad was a jokester. He liked to hide and jump out on my friends and me. I sometimes liked being scared but I think he went to far. I remember crying to my mom. I never really got over it and found myself being a scary cat. I put a dragon behind a gate because it scares me. I also have a piece of artwork representing a very scary picture my parents had down in the basement. I always felt the eyes were watching me. Maybe I watched too many scary movies or had a huge imagination. That could not of helped the issue. I never watch scary or evil movies anymore.
