As pediatric therapists, we know how important it is to help kids keep up with skills over the summer. As moms, we understand that actually getting kids to practice anything over the summer can be a hair-pulling, teeth-gritting experience. So we’ve created an awesome printable packet full of fine motor, gross motor, and sensory activities and ideas to keep you busy all summer long.
If you’re a parent, purchase the downloadable packet, print one out, and try to do one activity a day all summer long! If you’re a therapist, this is the perfect thing to print and send home with your students or clients to make sure they continue to get the exposure and practice they need even when they’re not in therapy.
Inside the downloadable pdf packet you’ll find:
-Simple cutting practice pages
-Simple early writing activities
-Hand strengthening activities
-Tricks for promoting efficient pencil grasp
-Information about strengthening for kids
-Fun activities to build core strength
-Easy ideas for working on gross motor skills like ball skills, jumping, and stairs
-Lots of ideas for mess-free sensory play
