Kids love manipulatives!!
Make your own plastic shapes and frames to weave by cutting up plastic containers or purchase Weavable toys on my website RecyclingOT.com.
Weaving develops eye-hand coordination and bending the plastic strengthens fingers. Design your own toys for endless possibilities! These toys are designed for children and adults with or without disabilities.
It is easier to teach how to pull the shapes off the frame or remove from a long cord.... so first teach this skill to people with greater challenges. Increase challenge by using more complex shapes, smaller shapes, thinner cord and smaller notches to weave into or stiffer plastic. Learn more at:
