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.

Glow Hockey

Work on visual motor integration, visual scanning, finger dexterity
A fun game of air hockey at your fingertips. The mallets are the red and green circles you see above. Use your finger to move the mallet and hit the puck across the line and toward your opponents goal area. The puck bounces off the sides just like a real air hockey game. The first one to score seven wins. Play alone or with an opponent. Four levels of play for one person games range from easy to insane. Glow Hockey 2 comes with different themes for the background.
