I am a huge Pinterest fan. You can find anything on there including thousands (millions?) of great pediatric therapy related pins…sometimes, it can get pretty daunting! Whenever I see a pediatric therapy board with 2,000+ pins on it, I pass it by, no matter how tempting. You know that once you click on a board, you won’t stop scrolling til you reach the bottom. Is that even possible when a board has 10,000+ pins? (I’ve seen it!)
To make it easier on you folks out there just looking for some easy to find summertime therapy activities, here are five boards with less than 300 pins!
- Summer Fine Motor Ideas Fine motor printables and activity ideas with summer time themes! We love the printable playdough mats from Sing A Story.
- Holiday Summer Sensory Activities A selection of outdoors sensory activities perfect for a hot summer day! Check out the Colored Ice & goop by Creative Playhouse.
- Summer Activities A variety of fun summer ideas for fine motor, visual motor, and gross motor activities. Squirt Bottle Painting by Mess For Less is a great idea to keep kids occupied during a summer get together!
- Summer – Speech Printables and activities to keep your child’s speech and language skills sharp over the summer! We like Surf Into Summer language activities, a free printable from First Grade and Fabulous.
- Summer Therapy Fun! You can find all of these suggested pins and more fine motor, gross motor, sensory, speech, and language ideas on our summer themed board. We promise–you won’t have to weed through 2,000 pins to do it!
