I LOVE this idea for our older kiddos. In general kids love Legos. Additionally, most parents love Legos 😉 Kiddos with Autism tend to be very concrete thinkers, so why not bring together a fun playing item with a concrete display to help visualize fractions? After the lesson is complete, hang out with your kiddo and enjoy some serious creation time! Post your favorite creation below to show off your and your kiddo’s serious LEGO skills!

After all, what better way to spend time together than creating a favorite contraption and ‪#‎WhyNotEngage‬ ?!

Why Not Wednesday: It is that time of the year… SUMMER! The kids are loving the sunshine and doing their programs and playing outside. Some of the parents have filled me in on some of the other favorite activities for the summer:

  • playing on the playground
  • going camping
  • feeding the ducks
  • ice cream at AK Land
  • building a fort
  • having a water balloon fight

What does your family do to engage in the Summer? Share your ideas on Facebook  so everyone can have fun in the sun, after all ‪#‎WhyNotEngage‬ ?!

End of the Rainbow Cookie Parfaits From Tablespoon food that is fun

Why Not Wednesday: I happen to LOVE cooking activities with kids. (We frequently use cooking to set up teaching moments at the Center) Here is a fun, easy idea to use for St. Patty’s Day from tablespoon.com. Cooking offers opportunities to teach measurement, expand on food tolerances, share engaged time, and many others! Plus you end up with a delicious treat which your kiddo may or may not help you eat. But it really isn’t about the product, is it? So grab a bowl and mix up something fun, after all ‪#‎WhyNotEngage‬ ?!
