Putting Therapy Into Practice

January brings a good chance of snow! The next time it snows, go outside to shovel and talk to your child about what you are doing! Look! It snowed! We need to shovel the sidewalk/driveway. What do we use to move the snow? Where should we put the snow? Get creative! What can we make with snow? (Snowman, snow angels, paint in the snow, an igloo).  If you build a snowman, ask your child, What should we add to make our snowman look great? (hat, scarf, nose). Compare your child’s snowman to another snowman in the neighborhood or a snowman from a winter book.  Bring a cup of snow inside and ask your child, What do you think will happen?  Have your child observe the changes.  Have fun and enjoy the snow with your child!
