Getting any child ready for kindergarten is a vital right of passage in their early years, but because motor delays often go hand-in-hand with Autism Spectrum Disorders, anything that helps develop those essential fine motor skills is extremely important. The Getting Our Hands Ready Kit from The Therapy Shoppe is a wonderful kit designed by Occupational Therapists to help children with such delays. Packed with fun games and engaging activities that help develop finger strength, fine motor skills, pre-writing skills, and help teach proper grasping skills, kids are sure to have a blast while using this amazing set. It even comes with an activity guide so there is no guessing what to use the items for and what each activity helps with.

Quinn loved playing with dough and putting fun stamps into it then rolling out his creations and starting over, feeding foam bugs to “Mr. Crunch”, the plastic frog, and coloring sheets. He also got to place reusable stickers to create a variety of fun scenes, which fostered his imagination as well as using his pincer grasp. This set really is fun, entertaining, and helps with so many motor skills that it’s truly a well-rounded set. The teacher’s guide is also tremendously helpful. The entire set is well made, so your child is sure to outgrow it long before it becomes tattered and worn.
