Finger paints

In light of Benji meeting his goals with occupational therapy, we have decided to continue with the OT/Spd exercises at home.

One of the exercises that we have had much success with is finger painting with shaving cream.

You use plain shaving cream(not gel)
Food coloring is optional

Be cautious of clothing, it can stain. So can hands. This works really great if you have a table surface that the shaving cream won't harm. Squirt the shaving cream on your surface and mix in the coloring. To start you can use paint brushes or foam brushes to spread it around and "paint" on craft paper. As your child accepts that you move to using their fingers.
