Winter Themed Snow Room Therapy

by on December 21, 2016

Pediatric therapists are always looking for ways to engage children in the therapy sessions and the best way is to make it FUN!

This year our team of physical, occupational, and speech therapists have created a variety of hands on, completely engaging activities to utilize with the children.

Kids can create snowmen/snowladies and decorate snowflakes, while working on their fine motor skills.

Then, dress up to take a ride on our “sleigh”, while on our “horse” improving balance, and tolerance of movement all while having fun driving the sleigh.

strap on ice skates to skate around,

experience snow as a sensory experience of touch,

or for those wishing to eat our pretend edible snow, we have mashed potatoes,

make lots of paper snowballs to build a snowman/lady,

Or, for the most fun of all……………………..have a snowball fight with your physical therapist 🙂
