Activity ideas for parents of disabled children
Parents can spend quality time with children with disabilities by engaging in various types of activities.
Activities are a fun way of learning new skills and helping the children become independent.
Here are some simple and fun activities that can be done by children with disabilities.
Create a texture book– this can be done by pasting fabrics and materials with different textures on a scrap book or a simple notebook pages. Sand paper, bubble wrap, foam wash cloth, can be used as different textures.
Smell tour– take the child for a tour to smell different places such as frits shops, flower shops, pet shops, perfume shops and help them experience the smells.
Sensory park – Going to a sensory park is also a great fun activity for a child with disabilities.
Dress up – Make dresses with thick paper or cardboard to play dress up and have fun with various costumes.
Match pictures– Take pairs of similar pictures or photoes and play the game of matching them.
Sensory games– You can also create sensory games with stuff at home such as food items, toys etc.
