Creative Clinical Social Worker
Valentine’s Day Activity
Buy a box of chocolate and dump out the candy
Color code the compartments.  You can do this by securing colored paper or stickers to the bottom.
Create a color code on the inside the lid: Assign a task/question to each color (ex. Red = Identify a personal strength).  Instead of a color code, you could also just write the task instructions directly on the compartment’s bottom (ex. a feeling)
Fill compartments back up with goodies. I don’t want to get my clients too hyped up on chocolate so I usually just include one piece for each person and fill the rest with stickers, Valentine’s erasers, fruit snacks, raspberries/strawberries, small toys, bracelets, etc. (Dollar store party section)
Clients choose an item and then complete the corresponding task/answer the question.
This activity can be easily adaptable to specific therapeutic focuses, but if you want to keep with the Valentine’s day theme you could relate the tasks to prosocial behavior, the “5 love languages,” appropriate ways to express care/affection, healthy boundaries, social skills, family, etc.
