Here parents, educators, and therapists come together to share ideas to help children of all abilities function at their utmost potential. Useful information and tips regarding the challenges that children can face, as well as fun, educational crafts and games for children to do are covered here. Some of the topics addressed are sensory, fine motor, school readiness, autism, strengthening and crafts.
For back to school, have your child make a school bus made from an egg carton. Simply have your child color or paint the carton yellow. (A cardboard carton works best) For the older child, have him/her look through magazines and have him/her cut out pictures of children and glue them on the inside of the carton so that the faces are seen through the holes of the carton. For younger children, simply have them glue the children in place. Cut circles from black construction paper (again, the older child can cut these) and glue for wheels. Another idea for wheels- use bottle caps and paint them black. Then write "school" on the carton, and your child has his/her very own school bus.
