It’s amazing how it always works out this way, but this weeks playgroup activities focused on several of the things we worked on during the week with our other therapy sessions. In OT we used clothes pins as a fine motor activity to help with his pinching and grasping. Today’s activities centered around those same techniques. At one station the kids had to pair up socks and then hang them on a clothes line. At the other station they used an eye dropper to suck up colored water and then squeeze it out again on coffee filters. I’m sure his fingers were cramping up toward the end, but he was having fun!
I was able to get a picture of Jacob and the parachute! It’s part of the routine that the leaders have created for the kids to follow but, as you can tell from the smile on his face, it is a well-loved routine!
