App of the Week | Sunday Drive

I'm rolling with the travel theme this month. Are you staying closer to home this summer? If so, Sunday Drive might be the travel app for you.

In this app, you choose a start point, and it then provides you with driving routes along with points of interest along the way. To show you what it looks like, I put in one of my favorite places, Malibu.

This might seem like an odd app to share on an occupational therapy blog, but the reason I think this app has therapeutic power, is that it can be used by older kids or teens to help plan a day trip or staycation. Getting kids involved in the planning process for their day, week, vacation, etc. is such a great and practical way to work on those executive function skills this summer!

What do you think? Do you try to encourage your kids to help plan during the summer? How do you encourage executive function skills in the summer? I LOVE how Ali has tasked her son with making a batch of cookies each week this summer. What a great idea!
