Messy play 🤚 🤚🏽. So important for the little ones. This is a sentence I believe in, often say to clients, yet...I could often pass on messy play 🤷🏽♀️. Fingers in flour, yuck pass me a paintbrush, sand castles at the beach..shovel please! My (sensory avoidant) feelings aside, I still engage in it with my clients and my own little ones because of the benefits. Here is an easy water activity that keeps kids of all ages engaged (and can appease those who don’t like getting their hands dirty like me 🙋🏽♀️). Just freeze fruit in water in an ice cube mold and pop them in the freezer. Once frozen add the cubes and some water in the tray and let your little one have the time of their life! Toddlers and older kids love this activity, as they get into the science of floating etc. You could easily add small cups and spoons 🥄 to practise transferring and pouring skills.
OT Tip; this is a great multi-sensory activity✔️ that supports creative exploration✔️, imagination✔️, language✔️ and eye hand✔️ as well two handed✔️coordination skills. So if you have a sensory avoidant kiddo (or are a parent like me in the same situation), this is a great simple desensitization activity to support messy play...one step at a time, I am working up to finger painting 🙀..wish me luck 🤞🏽

Kids love slime (probably more than their parents)! But for the /sl/ blend, slime makes the perfect craft! There are tons of ways to make slime (just ask Google!) and you’ll come up with plenty of recipes using various ingredients. We opted for the easiest recipe of all - a slime kit! No matter what you choose, slime is sure to be a fun way to practice the /sl/ blend!

Home can have a different meaning to everyone. Sometimes home can be multiple places. Home can be where you are now or where you grew up. For some, home can just be a feeling.
This year, we’re asking our Middle School Playwriting Competitors to share their experience of home.
To participate, students in grades 6-8 will write an original, entertaining and enriching 10-minute play based on this year’s theme: What does home mean to you?

🎨 ART HOUSE 🏠
Doll houses don’t necessarily have to be for dolls 😜. Give your doll house a face lift by using it to display art supplies like this ☝🏼. You probably notice that your child gets tired of playing with the same toys 😏. By doing something simple like this, it becomes fresh and new to them. Nicky’s literal words were, “Mami, its perfect!” ❤️. •
❣️I’ve created an Amazon Shop with all of the supplies we use for the activities I share 🤩. I also added toy recommendations by age 🙌🏼. Theres a category called toys that grow with you 👶🏻➡️👧🏻. These are toys that are open to multiple ages and can be played with in many ways. Click the link in my bio to check it out 👀🛍. Ill be sharing more of this on my stories today and I’m saving them under the playroom highlights 💓. #mothercould
