Don’t Break the Ice
Little children have a lot to learn. Apart from this, I will use this game as a strong player while working on other skills in the therapy, children will earn “snow” which they use to set the game and when we earn all our snow And the game gets set, we play. It is also a great game to use to help kids control their impulses, and wait as small children want to kill ice with their hammers while awaiting their turn.
Honey Bee Tree
Another very popular game in my therapy! In Honey Bee Tree, the players are trying to remove the leaves one by one so that no bee falls (or as I play it, see how many bees fall!). When I am using it as a supplement in my therapy, then I have children who earn leaves and put them because we work on other skills and then we play the game is all set. Children seriously love this game.
