Monthly Play Kits!

Our first monthly kit is ready to ship!

 

These kits are designed to help kids work on their social skills while having short structured play dates with a peer. Each month has a different focus - the first month’s theme is Following Directions!! Included in the kit are two activities for kids to do on a play date, plus a fun activity to do as a family to work on a particular skill. Have fun while working on social skills!

INCLUDED IN THE KIT:

  • A DIFFERENT THEME EVERY MONTH

    Each month focuses on a different social skill designed to encourage play and friendships, with an explanation of why the topic of the month is important and helpful to kids who are learning how to play with others and build friendships.

FOR EXAMPLE:

Monthly kits kids playing together by Encourage Play

"The first month's theme is Following Directions. It's such an important skill for a solid foundation for positive social interaction. First and foremost, it's necessary for children to be able to follow the rules to stay safe. Kids need to be able to listen, internalize what they've heard, process it and then their actions have to reflect what they've heard. It's important to follow directions when playing games, cooking or building model airplanes or lego models. It's necessary for a child to learn to follow the directions given to them by all adults in their lives, especially when they are at a play date at someone else's home or at school..."

Some other themes in the coming months will be Flexibility, Managing Feelings and Picking Up On Clues.

  • PLAY DATE ACTIVITIES

           2 - 3 ready to go activities for a small play date (2 kids)

FOR EXAMPLE:

Origami activity - 25 origami sheets and directions to make a simple twirly bird - it spins when you throw it in the air!

Duct Tape - Two rolls of duct tape and simple to follow directions to make a duct tape wallet.

  • A FAMILY ACTIVITY

Family Activity - An activity that a family can do as part of a game night, or just for fun together to continue to build the skill.

FOR EXAMPLE:

Red Light, Green Light - with variations! Start with the traditional Red Light means Stop and Green Light means go, then add in different colors with more types of movement, like skipping , crab walking or hopping, to make it more challenging. Or you could have them pretend to be an different animal for different colored lights. Or (my husband's personal favorite) you can say words that rhyme with red or green to see if they catch the difference "Bread Light! Mean Light!" Very silly, but quite fun.
