Putting Therapy Into Practice

Check your vegetable plant! Ask your child what colors they see on the leaves, flowers, and/or vegetables. Measure how long the leaves are, how tall the plant is, and how wide the vegetables are; then talk about the plant’s growth. Discuss how you can get the vegetable off the plant: pull it, cut it, twist it. How does it feel? slimy, squishy, bumpy. Eat the vegetable! How does it taste? Yummy, yucky, delicious, sweet, sour.
