Smarty – November Scavenger Hunt

Like Autism Live on Facebook at http://facebook.com/autismlive

For a fun indoor or outdoor activity we thought it would be a great idea to make a Scavenger Hunt for our kids. Using items you might find laying around you can make a list of objects our kiddos need to find. This type of activity is great for working on memory skills.

Smarty, short for smart art, is a monthly series showing the ways in which you can use art to bond with your child while practicing skills they are working on in therapy. Its real life application of lessons they are learning.
