3 Food stamping activities for children with autism
This activity is so much fun and a really great way to teach your child to use their entire hand to hold an object. It is also the perfect activity to teach your child about force – pushing down just hard enough but not too hard to make a lemon print on the paper.
This sweet activity requires just a few materials that you probably already have at home. It’s a little bit more difficult than the lemon stamping activity because it requires more precision to stamp the celery on the paper.
