I'm loving...

I recently stopped into a little store in my neighborhood that sells fun and quirky gifts, toys, paper products, and home decor items. While I was there I restrained myself and did not buy everything in sight, but I did manage to come up with an OT wishlist :)

Kido Go Car

Kid O Go Car
I've seen these cars in action and I love how they are easy to grasp for children with motor impairments, such as cerebral palsy.

Kid O Cutting Fruit

Play food is great for exposing children (especially selective eaters) to food. I like that these are held together with magnets and kids can use a plastic knife to cut the fruit into slices.

From the makers of Bananagrams, this game is kind of like dominoes with letters. While I was researching it, I also discovered Pairsinpears, which also follows the theme of using letter pieces to create words. Any of these could be adapted into a creative way to work on handwriting skills (and maybe even visual perceptual skills, too!).

A-z Animal Place Mat Coloring Pad

Okay, this is pricey for what is essentially just a coloring book, but I liked the pictures and how much fine motor control and fine motor precision could be worked on with these pictures.

About Face Card Game Activity

This game looks like a fun way to work on body parts (at least parts of the face) while encouraging categorization and language development at the same time.
