Easter Therapy Tip of the Week

I don’t like recreating the wheel, do you?

So…

I’m digging in to the Therapy Tip of the Week vault to bring you FABULOUS ideas for activities for toddlers and young preschoolers in a lead up to Easter and SPRING!

The video includes ideas for:

  • Wind Up Toys – fantastic because it gives a child a reason to INCLUDE you during play for early requesting
  • Easter eggs – ideas for using Easter eggs for teaching labeling/naming small objects or pictures, learning prepositions/location words, or incorporating a child’s “quirks”
  • Sensory Boxes – what to include and how to use several ideas to address your speech-language goals and promote ‘tool use’ with toddlers. Using tools is not only a fine motor task, but an important COGNITIVE milestone for toddlers. Many toddlers who don’t have good pretend play skills really should begin with learning to combine toys during play. A very ‘functional’ or practical way to start is by using a tool during play such as a shovel or tongs.

I’ll be posting (re-posting) several Easter-themed videos over the next couple of weeks, so keep checking back for those.
