Allied Therapy News for August – High Tides and Good Vibes!

Updated: Sep 6, 2023

This month we have fun beach-themed activities the whole family can take part in.

The best part is you can support your child’s learning and therapy goals while also having fun using our suggested games and activities!

Gross Motor Activity

Use a beach ball or a balloon and hit it back and forth to play a simple version of beach volleyball. Add a net if you want to make the game more challenging.

Fine Motor Activity

Make a sailboat using sponge, straw, and paper. Then, place the boats on water and start a race. You can use a straw to blow on the sail.

Speech and Language Activity

Create a sandcastle and work on words like “scoop,” “dig,” “pour,” various spatial and position concepts (e.g. top, over, under, bottom), sequencing, taking turns, and following directions. You can also assign words to different sandcastle toys and tools that need to be said out loud first before being able to use them.
