my secret to preventing public meltdowns lol**eta**
so playskool makes these cool fold & go play sets right? i love them i think they are great given they keep jake occupied when hes antsy. only issue is its really easy to snap the parts off (therefore with jake its a supervised toy) i plan on collecting all of the sets because they are small and fit in the back pack we use as his survival bag (when we go on outings the bag and its contents help control meltdowns and help him refocus) i cant wait to get more of them. we also have puzzles and his blanket in the bag so having something that folds up flat and fits with everything else is great. i honestly have his therapists to thank. they made me realize that while some toys are great free play toys, some need to be kept for special occations and supervised directed play. i plan on getting him some new sensory toys and developmental toys (he loves puzzles and to him even the lacing beads are puzzles) to add to his bag and to swap out to mix things up a bit. its a life saver on outtings.
so anyone else have a "survival bag"? what are your go to toys? any suggestions?
