Holiday Gift Giving

Every year Toys R Us posts it’s holiday gift guide for differently abled children.  This is a great resource for families, relatives and therapists looking to get the right gift for a loved one in their life.

Here are  a few of my favorites:

Crayola Dry Erease Activity Board:This is a great gift that can be used during play time as well as to help structure your childs’ day!

Melissa and Doug Bake and Decorate Set :  I like this gift set because it encourages self-help skills that can be transferred into an activity with Mom or Dad.  I also like that the decorations can be wiped off and the cupcakes reused and redecorated.

Step 2 Wagon : This is kind of a classic type of toy.  It can be used indoors or outside and allows children to take their toys with them in creative play or for parents to take children with them on outdoor walks.  Anything that encouraged outdoor and creative play gets two thumbs up from me!
