With Halloween approaching I have put a lot of thought into the type of snacks I want my children to have and also what type of snacks I want to provide for their friends in treat bags. With my 3 year old now attending Nursery School two days a week for 2 hours, he has an upcoming Halloween Party. I searched our local Wegmans supermarket for items that fit both the holiday theme, and my desire to stay away from typical candy. We came up with these fun treat bags and activity.
Not only is this a great activity for Halloween, but it also addresses many skills preschoolers (and other age children) may be working on. If your child is receiving therapy you can ask the therapist which skills could use some reinforcing at home, I have noted skills my son’s class is working on and want to address them in our daily activities too. Skills include, but are not limited to: fine motor, visual motor, sensory, visual perceptual skills, sorting and counting, cutting with scissors, attending to task, altruism, functional grasp, proprioceptive input and also is a fun way to spend time together as a family.
