Toy Reviews from OT Schoolhouse: K’nex and Plus Plus Puzzle Pieces
[Source: OT Schoolhouse]
Hello OTs, COTAs, teachers, parents, and all that appreciate helping students succeed in school.
I wanted to share with you all two relatively cheap toys that are so versatile. To be honest, they tend to be my go to tools when things go awry. The best thing about them is that nearly every student enjoy using them and you can guide the child into using them in a way that develops skills.
Both of these toys not only inherently work on various fine motor and visual motor skills, but they also can give you an insight into their ability to imitate, copy, or independently create something from their own imagination.
