Self-Esteem Collages

I use this activity with pre-teen and teenaged clients often as a self-esteem building activity and also to help me understand how the client sees him/herself .  Common themes that I use are "All About Me" (in which the child cuts out words and pictures that describe him/her characteristics, interests, personality, etc) and "Design Your Life" (in which the child cuts out pictures and words that describe how he/she sees his/her future.  Topics they might cover are dream job, home, car, family, pets, and so forth). 

Provide the child with a magazines, markers, glue, scissors, etc. and allow the child to design their collage.  As you can imagine, they can get very creative with this.
