Recipes for Fun: Play Activities and Games for Young Children with Disabilities and Their Families.
Intended for friends and families of children with disabilities, the book contains information and suggestions on play activities, toys, and games for children (0-8) with mild and moderate disabilities. Activities are sequenced from simpler to more developmentally advanced within six major categories (1) exploring the senses (hid and find, flashlight games); (2) exploring movement (roly-poly games, ball, family bunny hop, home-made scooter boards); (3) exploring outdoors, waterplay and make-believe (sandplay, outdoor art, box creations); (4) exploring arts and crafts (homemade fingerpaint, baker's clay, screen painting, tie dye); (5) exploring music and rhythm (finger play games, action songs and chants, rhythm and musical instruments); and (6) exploring group activities (bean bag toss, circle games, dramatic play). Each activity provides information on goals, materials, directions, and adaptations. (CL)
