Coping through Art Therapy Programs + Activities

Today, we would like to introduce to a “Self Soothe Book”, a therapeutic art activity. Teen with a Dream wholeheartedly believes in the impact that art therapy has on pediatric cancer patients and implements the concept into our programs. 
This therapeutic art activity will provide your child a resource to turn to when they are feeling overwhelmed. It is designed to capture all of their favorite things into a simple book! 
Materials Needed:
  • Colored Paper
  • Magazines
  • Glue Stick
  • Scissors
  • Misc. Images of your child’s favorite things
  • Personal Photos [Optional]
  • Other Crafting Accessories [ex: glitter, feathers, etc]
