I have accumulated a HUGE amount of objects and toys over the years and if I go to a dollar store, I usually make a sweep down the educational eisle in search of anything that can be used in therapy. One day I actually found sequencing puzzles for $1 a package! Another day I found some sequencing objects at Michael’s in the science section and several of them matched the puzzles I bought already. After I got them all home, I sorted the puzzles with objects from around my house, toys I already had or toys my mom saved from my childhood (check out Barbie’s baby boy…yes that’s a boy).
I organized them each into their own separate containers in a larger carrying case. This entire case is perfect for sequencing, following directions, using grammatically correct sentences, use of ordinal numbers, retelling stories in a sequence, object identification and many more!
What objects do you have around your house? Put them together with some $1 puzzles for a great and inexpensive therapy activity that will last for years to come!
