These 22 colorful cards provide creative ideas for art therapy with children aged 4 - 11. Each card gives a different prompt - from "draw yourself as a superhero" to "paint freely with your fingers" - and is brightly illustrated to help stimulate the child's imagination.

Applicable for a wide range of group and individual therapeutic settings, the activities are grouped into four themes: feelings, relationships, the body, and imagination. They can help children to express themselves, gain confidence, understand and transform their behavior and emotions, and connect with their bodies. An accompanying booklet explains each prompt, its aims, the materials needed and potential benefits. It also flags activities that can be used to address specific issues, such as anxiety, trauma, and low self-esteem.
