I recently had a mom comment…asking specifically for a toy recommendation for her two and a half-year old son…she said that he is interested in “how things work”…..the toy listed above is just one of many from Alex Jr. toys….the website is: www.alextoys.com
Alex Jr. has toys for very little ones…and for toddlers and preschoolers. From an OT perspective..(one of my sister’s is an OT)…this is a great activity for fine motor skills.
From a speech and language perspective…be sure to use the strategies of self talk and parallel talk to help elicit expressive and receptive language development. You can address color concepts and spatial concepts, quantity concepts, and patterns.
