Our friends at BAC LOVE science and learning! We hope you enjoy the “Color Surprise Experiment” that you and your little one can do together. You can have fun while practicing your child’s speech/language skills- see home ideas below!
Print pictures below and cut cards. Have your child put the cards in order and then retell the order of the activity using complete sentences (e.g., “FIRST, I poured the glue.”)
Ask wh-questions to encourage conversation, support problem solving skills and practice understanding of WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHY and YES/NO!
Our occupational therapist, Stephanie, targets both fine motor and gross motor skills while finding baby fish in our “sea hammock”!
During this activity our friend was encouraged to utilize his gross motor skills to climb through the various layers of the “sea” (aka: hammock) to find the fish. Subsequently he used his fine motor skills to pinch the baby fish-clips and attach them back onto the mother fish! Not only was this activity fun and motivating, but it also supported numerous developmental skills.
Stephanie K, one of our occupational therapists, is targeting motor planning and sequencing with this activity while also incorporating pretend play. This child was encouraged to find hidden sandwich pieces around the gym and sequence them together in the correct order to make a delicious sandwich! Maybe Rody will want a bite! 🙂
