They're back! and SNP is the exclusive US distributor of MoveAbout Activity Cards
Winner of a Preferred Choice Award by Creative Child Magazine and an iParenting Media Award, this colorful 64-card deck illustrates activities in a game-like format that will help children develop their sensory/motor skills.
For children of all ages and abilities, many of the delightful activities require no special equipment, while others make use of standard classroom equipment to develop children's sensory/motor skills and improve their learning and behavior. The pack includes 64 cards on a snap-ring holder so the deck can be easily carried and accessed, a "How to Use" pamphlet if the cards need any explanation, and a sturdy storage box.
It's a great tool for parents, teachers, or therapists to use at home, at school, or in the clinic for immediate ideas to create diversions, use pent-up energy, or calm a child - all with fun activities. Winner of the Mom's Choice Gold Award, these great cards are divided into beginner, intermediate, and advanced activities. Each card tells you why and how the activity works, what you need for it, and ways to make it more challenging. It also tells you what to look for, to make sure your child is getting the most out of the activity.
These two experienced authors have over seventy combined years of teaching experience, and have learned the best ways to help children learn and grow using their motor development skills. Now parents can tap that experience and genius, using these handy cards, to help their kids grow, learn, and develop to the best of their abilities!
