OT Approved Toy | Cyber Monday

It's Cyber Monday! Are you looking for deals today? I don't know the low down on all the online deals, but I can hook you up with all sorts of gift guides from therapists (and parents!). How does that sound? Here we go:

Pink Oatmeal | Stocking Stuffers to Promote Motor Development. Chanda, a pediatric physical therapist put together a great list of stocking stuffers to promote motor skills. I also recommend that you check out Gifts for Baby that Promote Motor Development.

Mama OT | 10+ Toys and Games to Help Kids' Pencil Grasp without Using a Pencil. I love this list from Christie of Mama OT. This is full of toys and games that help develop the fine motor skills required for handwriting.

Love That Max | Holiday Gifts and Toys for Kids with Special Needs: 2014. Ellen is the mother of a child with cerebral palsy and she always puts together a great holiday gift guide based on her personal experience, recommendations from other parents, and therapist recommended toys. Be sure to check out her gift guides from previous years, too!

Starfish Therapies | Toys, Toys, Toys! Stacy is a pediatric physical therapist and she has put together a great list of toys that will help promote gross and fine motor skills.

OT Mommy Needs Her Coffee | What's on Your List? An occupational therapist and mama to boys shares her picks for this holiday season.

The Inspired Treehouse | Gift Guide: Promoting Healthy Development in Kids. The ladies at The Inspired Treehouse put together a list of therapist approved toys to promote fine motor skills, gross motor skills, and sensory processing skills.

Mac&Toys | 2014 Holiday Gift Guide. Each year, Meghan, a pediatric occupational therapist, puts together the ultimate gift guide. This year was no different. Oh, and she writes about toys all year long, so her blog is always a good place to check when shopping for toys.

Golden Reflections Blog | 5 Tips for Buying Gifts for Children with Special Needs. Tips from an occupational therapist.

Sugar Aunts | Toys to Help with Scissor Skills Gift Guide. I love this round up of gifts from an occupational therapist with toys that help promote scissor skills. Also be sure to check out Toys to Help with Learning to Get Dressed and Toys to Improve Pencil Grasp.

Two Cyber Monday sales I do know about:

Therapy Fun Zone | All Therapy Fun Zone products are 15% off. This is a great time to stock up on great digital downloads!

Educational Insights | 15% off educational toys using promo code FRIEND15 through December 31. I'm not sure if they're having additional Cyber Monday deals, but I would be a bit surprised if they're not.
