Toys That Teach

My son is a teen with Autism. He started ABA therapy just before schools closed due to Coronavirus. Since he started ABA, I’ve been slowly adding toys to our household.

I found some cool toys that are perfect for children with Autism and beyond! Let’s take a look at toys that teach!

ABA Therapy 

I am so thankful I found an ABA Therapy company as it was a very difficult journey. I had to find a company that had openings, took our insurance, and served his age group! I found this to be very difficult. I called and emailed several companies over a period of a few years. There were times when I got discouraged because I always received a “no.â€Â

I once tried being a foster dog mom. It was my very first time and looking back, it wasn’t a good fit overall. The dog had major surgery and I didn’t have the support from the shelter when I needed their help. Needless to say, that whole experience made me realize I needed to focus on our own family.

A Fun New Easter Tradition

When Easter comes around, my kids love 2 things; Easter egg hunts & decorating eggs. A day before Easter, I pull out all the egg decorating kits, cover my kitchen table with newspaper, and my kids get decorating. As a family we have so much fun. As a momma who is forever cleaning, I can only eyeball the mess. Yet the smiles & goofy fun they always seem to have, makes this activity a keeper & part of family tradition.

As with any tradition, small tweaks always make them more interesting & fun each year. From adding new ornaments to your Christmas tree or setting up new spooky decorations for Halloween, why not a new & fun addition to Easter?

Breaking out the basics encourages the most creative play. This popular brand is one I turn to frequently when it comes to providing open, creative play and I think you’ll agree that they are the best too.

Cool, Cute, And Entertaining Gifts For Kids

Last year, I went to my son’s family picnic event that was hosted by the special education classes, held at the end of the year. It was so nice to talk to his teachers and assistants that help out in his classroom. After that, I told myself I would make more of an effort to get involved with his class. I am going to chaperone as many of his field trips as I can. I haven’t decided if I’m going to volunteer in his classroom, I’m not sure what how he’d feel about seeing me at school! I also want to help in any of their community activities that his class participates in. This year, we gathered a few cool, cute, and entertaining gifts for kids!

I don’t keep toys in the house just because my son will destroy them or they will be lost, discarded, or worse. Instead, any toys, books, and such that I receive, I’ve been saving to donate to his classroom. For instance,I was sent two different children’s books which I plan on donating to his classroom!  I also have a handful of beauty products that are brand new that I’m going to give to his teachers. I prefer to share anything extra that I receive!

Fall has started and Halloween is upon us! I haven’t decorated a single thing, which is shocking. My little Miss has been reminding me almost daily about her school party that is coming up. Usually I pack little treat bags for each of the kids and include candy and stickers. This year I want to provide them with sugar-free treats, providing instead a little more fuel for their imagination.

My Daughter’s Favorite Monthly Box Subscription My Daughter’s Favorite Monthly Box Subscription

Both of my daughters are absolutely smitten with all things that come from Japanese culture. They love it all — reading manga, anime, clothing, candy and food, plush toys, and household goods like bowls and chopsticks.

My younger daughter, in her mid teens, is also pretty into Japanese and Korean music. I do not pretend to know anything about this music genre, but I love that she loves it. Anytime these music groups are featured on television I always make sure she knows so that we can watch it together.

Since I know very little about Japanese culture, I love that monthly box subscriptions exist. You can find such a service for a wide variety of interests. Personally, I love yarn. I’m an avid knitter and crocheter. So, I love trying out new monthly yarn clubs.

Japan Crate monthly subscription boxes are a great way to learn about all things Japanese. They offer several monthly box options with unique themes to choose from.
