When participating in virtual play therapy sessions from their own homes, children can utilize a variety of items to enhance their therapy experience. Here are some ideas for items that can be used during virtual play therapy sessions:…

Books: Children can bring their favorite books to share with their therapist or read independently during the session.

Art supplies: Crayons, markers, colored pencils, and paper can be used for drawing or other art activities during the session.

Board games: Certain board games can be played virtually with the therapist or independently during the session.

Fidgets: Small fidget toys, such as stress balls or spinners, can help children regulate their emotions during the session.

Slime and Playdough: These tactile toys can be used to help children express themselves and work through difficult emotions.

Favorite toys: Children can bring their favorite stuffed animal, action figure, or other small toy to the session to use during play activities.

Family photos: Family photos can be used to prompt discussion and exploration of family relationships and dynamics.

In addition to these physical items, virtual play therapy sessions can also utilize digital play therapy sites to enhance the therapeutic process. These sites may include interactive games, virtual sand trays, and other tools that can be shared via screen sharing with the therapist. These resources can help children engage in play activities that are both fun and therapeutic.
