How 10 Toys & Activities Can Improve Grabbing & Releasing

1. Handheld Mirrors

  • Since Savannah loves looking at herself in the mirror, handheld mirrors are a good toy to practice grabbing, holding and hand movements. Your child may like holding onto handheld mirrors and looking at themselves, too.

2. Colorful Scarves

  • You can put colored scarves on your child’s head or an object and they can practice putting it on and taking it off.

3. Maracas

Maracas are fantastic musical playful items for kids with special needs especially older children. Making music with one or two maracas is a wonderful way to spend part of your child’s day.

4.Slinky

A slinky is a simple toy that Savannah likes to play with independently, after I assist her to grab onto the slinky. Slinkies come in a variety of colors and sizes, which may also liked by your unique individual.

5. Small & Large Plastic Rings

Small and large rings can be used to make stretching and moving arms more enjoyable while singing songs such as Wheels on the Bus or having a conversation with your child.

6. Rainbow Dance Ribbon Streamers

Moving Rainbow Dance Ribbon Streamers back and forth is another favorite activity of Savannah’s, which your special one may like too. The rainbow streamers come in a set of 12 on Amazon and the streamers are long. If the ribbon streamers are too long for your child, you may consider cutting the length of the ribbons.

7. Playing A Simple Game of Catch

Play a simple game of catch even if you have to put the ball in your special someone’s hand and they can only let go of the ball in your hand. Savannah enjoys playing catch even though the ball is “thrown” to her within a short distance.

8. Grabbing balls and Releasing them in a container

Grabbing small balls of any kind including golf balls from the floor or putting the balls in your child’s hand and having him or her release the ball into a container is a simple activity to work on fine motor skills and dexterity.

9. Grabbing & Releasing Magnetic Balls

Grabbing and releasing magnetic balls is similar to releasing small balls in a container. Magnetic toys make playing more fascinating and enjoyable. You can let go of the magnetic balls in a container, attach other magnetic items to the balls or simply play with the magnetic balls by themselves.

10. Pegs & Pegboard

Pegs and pegboard can be used as several simple activities such as making a design with the pegs on the pegboard with hand over hand assistance, building towers with the pegs and knocking them down or putting several pegs together and holding them. Lastly, you can put a ball on one peg on the center of the board and your special someone can hit the ball with his or her hand or a stick of some sort.
