Hello everyone, 

 

I hope you are well and keeping yourselves safe!

 

We miss you and wish to see you when things get better smiley.

  

Meanwhile, here are few activities to keep you busy until we meet again.

 

Keep your bodies active

 

  1. Remember to follow your physio programmes; use your standing frame each day, wear your AFOs and hand splints.

 

  1. Work on your stretches each day to keep you moving and make sure you are getting your time to wriggle and move on the floor.

 

  1. Use your walker (if you have one) and go out for a short walks and enjoy the weather.

 

More fun for you and your family!

 

Please share stories with your children, they love listening and engaging with familiar stories.

 

Here are some stories we have been reading:

Out and About

 

Go out and enjoy the outdoors (one walk a day) - feel the wind and the sun on your face, listen to the birds, smell the natural scents from flowers and other natural resources.  (If going to an open space make sure you stick to the social distancing guidelines).

Collect leaves, sticks and flowers; make a collage using resources that you have collected.

 

Hand and feet massage

 

Using household oil, experience a hand or feet massage. While having a massage, listen to some calming music from YouTube. 

Here is an example:
