Without giving too much information and breaking confidentiality, I wanted to share the difference in two back to back sand tray experiences with the same child. This truly defines the saying, “What a difference a day makes.”
After 5 years as a school counselor, I figured I had enough experience “under my belt.” To really start focusing on the RESULTS of my program.
I cannot take credit for actually preparing these mini sand trays that are now in my possession. One of my very dear colleagues used these sand trays and many of the miniatures for her research project for grad school. When she was finished, she so generously donated them to me for my play room.
I can speak first hand about their making because I am also proud to say that this dear colleague is one of my best friends and so I was there (watching) with her the whole time.
