I cleared out a dresser drawer and have washed a bunch of baby clothes. This is a solution for the interim but I will need to come up with something a bit more permanent. Once we get the boys new room finished I will have a better idea on dresser space 😀
Here is a closer look at two of them ‘Pom pom pick up,’ has 6 stacked cups that need to be pulled apart and then there are tweezers to sort the coloured pompoms into their containers. The ‘Sorting hearts’ has three containers that need to be opened and then the hearts can be sorted by size or colour. Now some of you may have your wheels turning and think okay Hannah she’s 3, but Joel is 5 isn’t that beneath him. While sorting the colours will not be a challenge for him the actual activity will be. Because of his brain surgery he is still working hard at fine motor skills. Joel lost the use of his right hand and while he has regained much control of it he still prefers his left. As you can imagine just switching your dominant hand is no easy task and while he prefers his left he still needs to develop more control there as well. These activities will help with strengthen his hands.
I have a basket that I am storing all their activities in. As the kids get back into the swing of things I will post more about them using their activities.
