I cut the big box into each cup. Here my son had great fun playing with them – stacking, counting etc.

Then we painted them. I talked about inside and outside. It’s easier to paint inside first then you can turn them over and paint outside without holding them.

redhanded

We saw the Occupational Therapist today for an initial meeting and she said it does sound like our son has a Sensory Processing Disorder to do with touch. It wasn’t long before he was painting his hands red. Here he is “red handed”
