The Inspired Treehouse features creative, playful activities that promote development and wellness in children. We are pediatric physical and occupational therapists with years of clinical and school-based experience, but we’re busy moms too! So we know how important it is to cut to the chase and provide realistic, easy-to-implement activities and suggestions. The activities we feature here are the same ones we use in our therapy practice and at home with our own kids, so they’re tried and true! At The Inspired Treehouse, we believe that with a little help, kids can build strong, healthy bodies and minds through play. We feel strongly about making clinical terminology accessible to everyone by breaking it down into terms that are less intimidating.
We organize our posts using kid-friendly themes that coordinate with the seasons so teachers and parents can find what they’re looking for when they’re looking for it. Some posts will provide instructions for facilitating spd activities, lists of materials/supplies, and useful ideas for varying the difficulty and approach. Be sure to check out the Clinical Closeup page to see a breakdown of the developmental skills being targeted in each activity. In other posts, we will give suggestions for books, songs, toys, and other ideas related to the current theme.
Don’t miss our Freebies section, where we offer free printables and other resources related to each theme. We also love to showcase products that are therapist and mom tested and kid-approved! Browse some of our favorites by clicking on Shop Our Favorite Products.
Now that you know a little bit about us, go ahead and start following us as we begin posting our collection of activities! Read us, Pin us, Facebook us, SHARE us! We hope you come away with some creative ideas for playing with your child. Enjoy watching them learn and grow!

I love this blog! Electronics and busy parents have nearly eliminated the opportunity for children to get adequate activity for achieving even a basic level of fitness. Not to mention enabling creative play with simple inexpensive, readily available equipment! I hope this blog will encourage parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or anyone who has contact with children to implement some of these activities daily! Keep up the great work, ladies!
Thank you so much, Dee! We really love what we do and we are excited to spread the word about how fun and simple movement activities can be. Thank you for spreading the word!!!
