The holidays are always filled with fun, family and, the thing our kiddos are most excited for, gifts! And since we love to play with a purpose at Beyond Speech Therapy Specialists, we’ve gathered some awesome gift ideas for each child on your list.
We’ve arranged our gift guide by discipline – speech, motor work and social work – so finding a gift that your child will love AND supports their goals is so easy!
Favorite Gifts To Build Motor Skills
This air dry clay kit comes with everything kids need to let their imaginations run wild! We love this clay because it provides awesome sensory input and creative play without being sticky, messy or hard to work with. Also great to work those fine motor muscles in small hands!
The Pop It craze has hit and we love it! These fun, colorful toys are an awesome way to practice fine motor movements!
Another classic toy that does so much more than simply burn off some holiday energy! Jumping rope helps work the large muscle groups, improves gross motor skills and helps kiddos practice balance and coordination
Favorite Gifts To Build Speech Skills
We love using board games to build important speech skills. Zingo is bingo with a zing! This game is a fun way to work on matching, object identifying and categorizing.
This fun, beautifully detailed pretend play set is a great way for kiddos to practice their expressive language! Use categorizing skills and imaginative place as they serve up delicious ice cream treats.
Kids will be serving up some big fun with this one! Stack your pancakes to match the cards and practice some big, important skills along the way. Kids get to practice color matching, shape identification and describing words.
Favorite Gifts to Build Social Work Skills
We hope this holiday season is chock full of all of your favorite things! Take time to enjoy time together and always remember to play with a purpose!
