It is really an old game but I am finding that many of the things we played with as kids are the best things for kids like this. We have gotten away from all of the things that promote fine and gross motor control.
This is great. Thank you. My niece was recently diagnosed with SPD and I've been wanting to get her something that she'd enjoy. Any ideas for an almost 2 year old?
Kelley Wilson says:
Yes puzzles with knobs, shape sorters, spray bottles with colored paint in them, bingo markers (these make dots on bingo cards but are fun to play with) the triangle shaped crayons. If she has noise issues a cute pair of fun earmuffs. An easel, writing on a vertical surface will help with arm strength therefor fine motor control.She is lucky she was diagnosed early things will be much better for her once she reaches school age!
