A Halloween Art Therapy Activity

Maple-leaf1  Let’s start by thinking of all the negative energies or influences in your life.

  1. Think about any negative people, events (recent or otherwise), or anything else that has had a negative impact on you recently.
  2. Take all these negative “pieces” and imagine each of them has a spirit.
  3. Take a moment to forgive these negative spirits in your life, if only for a short period, and focus on what you would offer these spirits as a peace offering, or a “treat” if you will.
  4. Ideally you create something that you can give to each negative spirit, but if you have too many negative spirits to treat, then think of something you can give to all of them.

Maple-leaf1Alright, now feel free to be as creative as you like. I might suggest trying something different and going with a Halloween-ish theme for your creation…maybe using pumpkins, leaves, or construction paper and crafts, or even just incorporating the colors of fall. But if you’d like to draw or paint in pastels, that’s good too! Those are just a few ideas, but whatever fancies you is what you should create.

When you’re done, you can place your “treat” outside on the porch, patio, front door, etc. Or if you’re worried about anyone seeing or taking it, then leave it inside the house. Maple-leaf1
