Children learn through play. As an occupational therapist who works with children and youth, I use games and toys almost every day to help develop important cognitive, visual perceptual, motor, sensory, social, play and leisure skills. While many different types of activities can be used in therapy, this blog focuses on off-the-shelf games and toys that are accessible to most. Whether you are a therapist, parent, teacher, or a game lover like me, I hope you discover something useful while you are here. Learn a different way to play a game you already own or discover a new game for your next family game night. Either way, just go play. It's good for you!

The OT Magazine named The Playful Otter one of the Top 5 Pediatric OT Blogs.

It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown Look and Find Book

Work on visual discrimination, figure ground, manual dexterity, visual memory, visual scanning, visual form constancy
A great Look and Find figure ground book based on the classic It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Each scene is from the TV show and is two pages, side by side. Scenes include raking leaves, Linus in the pumpkin patch, Lucy's party, and the trick-or-treaters. Each scene has six to eight items to search and find. In addition, in the back of the book there is another set of items to find for each scene. A portion of some of the items will be hidden behind other items in the scene. All the Peanuts characters are here including Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Sally, Linus, and Lucy. Look and Find books are similar to the I SPY books.
Try this:
  • After going through the book, look at one of the sets of things to find in the back of the book. Look at one item from the set, go to the scene, and see if you can remember and find the item.
  • Use it in conjunction with the Great Pumpkin app. Watch a scene and then do the search and find for that scene.
