Last summer I started introducing Maxwell to various textures (lentils, kidney beans, pasta, etc.) for his sensory therapy, and we are finally starting to see some progress with his hands. Woo hoo!
This weekend I tried a different approach by sitting him in a bin and then piling in the beans. He actually had fun with it...so exciting! :)
He started a few funny tricks with the beans and most include making a MAJOR mess. He literally tosses the beans everywhere! Oh well, at least he is making progress and having fun! His feet are still incredibly sensitive and he keeps them above the beans. But today he actually crawled in the bin and so his feet touched the "sensory items" and he only freaked a little.
I have dry pasta wheels in the bin and Max picks them out and gives them to whoever is playing with him. Really cute! Sometimes Shakespeare is the lucky recipient...he definitely is a fan of the sensory bin!
Check out Shakespeare patiently waiting for his "treat."
Oh cool, I can see myself in the bowl. And gosh darn, they are right...I am gorgeous! :)
So gorgeous that I want to kiss myself!
Hmm...these little beans feel a bit weird, but they actually are quite fun!
