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.
Children love decorating and seeing their pieces being on displayed. When a child has limited mobility, they may have a harder time participating in decorating and start feeling left out. It is essential that there are things that they can help out with so they can feel included. Something as simple as picking out color and designs can help get children involved. Therefore, we have 9 decorating ideas that children with limited mobility could participate in.
