There are several “must have’s” in terms of equipment that I use as an occupational therapist and a mom, that’s why so many of the posts in Kids Play Smarter feature these products.
I am making it even easier for you to purchase these items through links directly through Amazon.com and two specialized therapy equipment retailers, Fun and Function, and a Pocket Full of Therapy. These products are great tools for developing fine motor, gross motor, sensory skills, and academic learning,, and better yet, they are readily available at affordable prices. Check out these featured items along with their corresponding activities from KidsPlaySmarter.com – Happy shopping!
