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.

The Family Dinner Box of Questions

In the box: 82 question cards
Ages 6+

Another game from the Box of Questions line. Questions are designed to help families share while connecting over a family meal. Could also be used to spark conversation in therapy. Pick a card, read the question, and let the discussion begin. Guide the discussion by responding with open ended questions of your own. Here is a sampling of the questions:
  • Which TV family is most like your own?
  • What is your favorite smell in the whole world?
  • What has a family member done or said to you this week that was very thoughtful?
  • What movie would you watch over and over again and why?
