1 || Animal Action || A wooden coin game that inspires creative movement and is sure to be loved by your little ones! Have your child reach in the pouch a pull out a coin to encourage her to hop like a bunny, flap like a dragonfly and more! Bonus benefit? Fine motor fun as they use their Super Fingers to pick up each coin and put it back into the bag when they are done!
2 || Bag of Bags || Bean bags ROCK for encouraging all kinds of movement. We love how this set of 10 is not only beautiful but each bag is filled with a different medium from beans to barley and fabric to poly-fill making them perfect for tactile sensory play as well!
3 || Color Square || Clothespins are always a hit with kids, and occupational therapists love them for the hand strengthening benefits that they offer. This beautiful set allows for fine motor practice combined with learning colors. Movement and learning at their best!
4 || Explore Nature Scavenger Hunt || An amazing gift set with 25 things to find, a journal to track the adventure, a pen and a pouch. A perfect way to get kids moving, touching, noticing, and interacting with the outdoors in a totally different way! It’s a great way to show kids how to explore many of their sensory systems at once!
5 || Make a Match || A sweet and compact memory matching game to take along to restaurants, playdates, or doctor’s offices. Test out your child’s visual perceptual skills with Mama May I’s wooden coin version of this classic game that is available in all kinds of themes from forest friends to dinosaurs to nature to trucks!
6 || Story Starters || Have I said enough about Mama May i’s packaging yet? This clear top container comes packed with four, 1” cubes with images on each side that prompt your child to start a story with the who, what, and when. Then, they are free to use their imagination (and fine motor skills) to write the why in the tiny journal. How many stories will your child come up with?
