Get your child out of the house in fun and unique ways with our list of outdoor activities that can expand your child's imagination and spring-time fun!
Believe it or not, spring holidays are already right around the corner. In the season of fake grass, high-sugar treats and bunny rabbits, it’s natural to want to help your child however you can get into the holiday spirit! With dietary limitations and certain activities perhaps being too difficult or challenging due to symptoms related to your child’s CP, it may feel impossible to actively participate in some of the more time-honored traditions like decorating eggs or hunting for treats.
It is that time of year where everyone is scrambling to buy gifts for love ones. It can be a fun time, especially if you include your child in the process. For families with special needs children, it can be hard to involve your child in gift giving. Every child should be included in the fun and adjusting the process for your special needs child can actually be an easy task. These five tips can help you include your child in gift giving and spread the holiday cheer.
Our final craft for your child with special needs is a fun slice of Pumpkin Pie. This craft can serve as an excellent table setter (write each person’s name on the brown crust so they know where to sit!), as well as serving as a fun opportunity for your child to get into the Thanksgiving spirit. Whether your child’s able to eat Pumpkin Pie or just wants to make the craft as a way to decorate your home, this can be a festive way to get the family involved.
A handprint can be more than just art for a parent. Serving as a permanent marker of your child’s size, a handprint design is a time capsule surrounding the holidays. It can also, though, be a simple and easy way to get your child involved in the holiday and craft-making spirit! With just a little bit of paint, some paper and creative energy, we hope that you’re able to make a great Thanksgiving decoration and lifetime memory out of your child’s handprint.
Thanksgiving is a fun, great time to bring the family together. A family that has a child with special needs may have a harder time figuring out how to get that child involved. The child may feel left out and unimportant to the task of getting ready for the holiday. With a couple simple accommodations, your child can feel included and more apart of the Thanksgiving prep.

Therefore, we have 9 decorating ideas that children with limited mobility could participate in.
