Happy Cyber Monday! It's now the most wonderful time of year. And with that comes all the stress of trying to pick out the perfect gifts for those special children in your life. Well we at FUNdamentals want to help! As we've been searching the internet, we've kept track of some of the websites that we've used to buy some gifts. We hope you find this helpful!
1. Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=s9_acss_bw_cg_a981b6a8_2a1_w?rh=i%3Atoys-and-games%2Cn%3A165793011%2Cn%3A%21241200011%2Cn%3A14725559011%2Cp_n_age_range%3A165890011&bbn=14725559011&ie=UTF8&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=unified-hybrid-4&pf_rd_r=2B3F0GHQ5QF336ZS1BK7&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=fa72b2b9-7883-45ea-b5ac-e1a9ca0e1e15&pf_rd_i=14725559011
This website is awesome for 1000 reasons. I'd be lying if I said that I didn't do most of my shopping through this website. I have found that they offer great gift ideas for kiddos of all ages and these gifts have been a hit with their recipients! The link above is to the gift guide for ages 2-4 years of age.
2. Toys r Us: https://www.toysrus.com/category?categoryid=3137242
This website offers a "top rated" section which is helpful if you're not sure what to get. It gave me great ideas!
3. Target: https://www.target.com/c/kids-gift-ideas-guide/-/N-5cgh5
This website offers a similar gift guide as the previous two websites. The gift guide is broken down by ages and offers great ideas!
4. Fun and Function: https://funandfunction.com/therapist-picks.html
This website is the site I go to for all my therapy needs. I have gotten all my lycra items and seated options through this website. I feel they are reasonably priced and they offer a section called "therapist pick" to help steer you towards the more popular therapy items.
From an OT perspective I look for games with a learning component and a fine motor component. I also enjoy games that foster interaction with others. Some personal favorite games include: Twister, Pop The Pig, Avalanche, Pie Sorting Game, Pop Up Pirate, and Angry Birds Game. I also love to buy tongs (I get all my tongs through Amazon. Try https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=tongs+for+kids&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Atongs+for+kids and purchase your favorite) and add them to just about every game I own. Just a fun OT trick!
I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!
