Let’s explore some suggested activities from our therapy team:
Erasable Magnetic Drawing Boards: These are like magic! You can draw and erase again and again. Just use the attached pen. It’s like having a mini whiteboard in your lap!
Magic Paint with Water Books: These books are like a secret. Dip the special brush in water and paint the pages to reveal colorful pictures. No mess, no fuss!
Magnetic Games and Puzzles: Flat magnets stick to a baking tray or a metal surface. You can create patterns, build shapes, or play fun games with magnetic pieces. No more losing bits and pieces!
Remember, safety and clean up is important too:
- Use activities that won’t roll away or have small parts that could get lost under the seats.
- Have a snack stash but avoid foods that might potentially be a choking hazard for young children such as popcorn and peanuts and make sure any small round foods like grapes/blueberries are cut in half for safety. Extra tip – you might want to make the snack serves smaller than normal to space them out throughout the car trip.
With these awesome activities, your long car trip will be a blast!
