I use this to teach kids that some things are within their control (Play-Doh problems) and some things are not (rock problems). I give them a set to take home as a reminder. Throughout therapy I'll often ask, is that a rock problem or a Play-Doh problem? It's one of my favorite tools.
I love to set up treasure hunts because it’s awesome and fun. But did you know you can actually use them to help kids work on social skills? What social skills can a kid work on by doing a treasure hunt? It’s a great way to work on picking up on clues around us. It’s also wonderful practice for kids to work cooperatively, take turns, and problem solve. Why do kids need to be able to pick up on social clues?
