Skills on the Hill

Here is a quick and easy activity to do with kids on a rainy day, while they wait for dinner to be ready, or at a friends house with a small group of kids that are starting to get overstimulated.

Supplies:
Straws
Liquid soap (2 to 3 drops)
Bowl
Tray or cookie sheet

Fill bowl with 2 inches of water, add drops of liquid soap, insert one straw for each person, place bowl on tray or cookie sheet to catch water or soap. Blow!

Watch the bubbles, see how long everyone can blow, see how high the mountain grows!

This works on:
Oral motor planning
Ocular motor skills
Self-regulation
Tactile sensory processing
Respiration/breath support

We provide private therapy in our clinic for infants through middle school age children. We also provide school-based therapy at several DC Charter schools for children from preschool through high school. Activities are presented at the "just right challenge" and the level of difficulty is gradually increased as progress is made so that the child sees therapy as play instead of work.
