Homemade Sandtray Therapy Bridge, #1 Sandtray with bridge, #2: How to make a sandtray therapy bridge tray.

I was having a bit of a rough day and then I realized I still had not done my sandtray therapy class homework. Oh no, I have to go to bed early to wake up for a 12 hour shift and still get my things ready for tomorrow all after temporarily losing my phone (aka lifeline).

I was an absolute mess but then I remembered I get to do sand tray therapy homework, which is really almost just as good as when I get to play with play dough with my clients. I remembered how relaxing the experience was and how I didn’t feel as though I was doing homework.

So, I settled myself down and thankfully I had already made my sand tray therapy bridge out of toothpicks a few nights before.

Again, I found myself drawn towards certain miniatures and also really wanted to incorporate some newly bought ones as well. I found I had more greenery to use but still would have loved even more plants and vegetation. I have been using the dinosaur and the my little pony miniatures quite regularly.

I wanted to also use my little green frog but I had lost him sometime this weekend. I remember looking around trying to find him somewhere but was unable to locate my little friend who I still have yet to be able to figure out what he was trying to tell me.

So, I just continued and I realized how much the dinosaur reminded me of the mother dinosaur in Land Before Time movie. I also remembered how much I enjoyed watching the series of movies over and over again as a child. While I thought of that then it occurred to me how much I enjoyed the My little Pony show as a child and looked at how I had incorporated the pony as well. I also noted how I really am drawn towards miniatures that remind me of my childhood in some way. I also notice how I’ve stayed away from certain miniatures not even really considering them at all.

I’m really interested to figure out more about translating the sand tray therapy miniatures, particularly this one because I honestly wasn’t sure at first how to incorporate the bridge and then it just kind of came to me. So I'm left wondering what is it that just came to me.
