Mask Project For Art Therapy Worksheet
Worksheet published on October 27th, 2020
Children in therapy can often struggle with expressing how they feel. For a number of reasons, a child can struggle with expressing their feelings and needs, even with their parents and friends. When a child is struggling to talk about how they feel, it can be helpful to think about other means of expression.
A great method of helping a child communicate is to think about how they can express how they feel through art projects. Drawing, writing and coloring can all help a child communicate. It can also be helpful when engaging a child who is resistant to talking.
