Arts and Crafts


I love doing crafts and Elizabeth shares that love with me. Crafts are such a fun way to learn and practice her fine motor skills. We have been working on her printing with her OT using the Hand writing without Tears program, it is a great program it really makes learning fun. Elizabeth is printing about 10 letters on her own and worked hard at signing all her Valentines cards. Her drawing is great, when she concentrates she can draw some pretty recognizable pictures most often her house, spiders and cats. Her cutting is going great she is controlling her scissors easier, she still has a slight tremor and twitch in her hand that makes some things difficult. Using her new love of the Veggie Tales we frequent this site for all sorts of craft ideas like Bob the Tomato above.

LOVE her crafts! I don't do enough of that with Max, he just doesn't love coloring stuff so much. I just got him these cool adaptive scissors, which look like a lot of fun, so I think we can have a lot of fun cutting stuff! Thanks for link to that site, very cool.
