Gemstone Art Activity

Talk about the different birthstones for each month and the healing properties of the various gemstones. 

Have each patient draw/paint/sculpt/create their own gemstone.  What does it look like?  How come they decided to make it look that way?

Afterwards, discuss what healing properties their gemstone would have and why those particular healing properties are important to them.

  1. awesome idea!! I printed out clip art pictures of gems, cut them out and allowed the acute psych patients to color and paste to a strip of paper. Each came up with the healing property of each gem so they can have it to remind them if they get depressed or anxious!
