Holidays are always wonderful with Fox 13’s The Place when talking about fun activities kids can participate in while learning.
Every parent knows Elf on the Shelf provides great motivation to help kids stay “nice” during the holidays and it prevents “bad behavior” because the elf is watching. Now that Elf on the Shelf has become such a huge hit, it gives parents, teachers and educators opportunities to motivate children at home and at school to participate in fun Elf on the Shelf activities that build their gross and fine motor skills, vestibular systems, proprioception, sensory systems and also creates more opportunities for activities that help retained primitive reflexes and midline crossing.
This year we are devoting an entire series to Elf on the Shelf as a way to give parents, Occupational Therapists and teachers ideas on how to integrate activities in your child’s everyday routine to help their development and educational growth.
