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.

LEGO Classic 10702

This classic set includes pieces to build 8 small models.

Another set of LEGOs that features small models. 570 pieces in 41 colors and a variety of shapes, including doors, tires, eyes, and windows. This set comes in a cardboard box. The lid is attached but does not latch in any way. I have blogged on these types of sets several times, so to avoid repeating myself I will supply a link (CLICK HERE) to go to a previous post for basic information and to see ideas for use with this type of set. For more information on other LEGO sets i have blogged about, just type LEGO into the search box on this site.

There are the 5 models that are included in the booklet that comes with this set:

Roller Skates - 30 pieces
Dog and food bowl - 34 pieces
Boombox and cassette - 56 pieces
House front - 43 pieces
Car - 52 pieces

You will find the instruction for the other models (above) at this website: https://www.lego.com/en-us/themes/classic/building-instructions##sp=178

Starfish and flower - 24 pieces
Parrot - 40 pieces
Pagoda - 84 pieces
Ship - It wasn't included in the book or on the site.

The instructions on the website print out in landscape orientation and there are either one or two instructions per page, meaning you could be printing out quite a bit. And the images are not very big. You might prefer to work directly from your computer.
