Q. My child doesn’t like playing with toys. How can I use the strategies from Mirror Me Online with him?

Many young children are not yet interested in playing with toys. You can brainstorm some activities that you child does enjoy, and then think about ways to use strategies within those activities.  Some children enjoy the use of these strategies during gross motor play (e.g., jumping on the trampoline), during routine activities (e.g., during snack or during dressing), and during arts and crafts activities (e.g., finger painting, stickers and stamps). Your child might also enjoy interacting with materials that you already have in your home in unexpected or different ways, such as tearing paper, running hands through dried rice or pasta, banging plastic cups together, pouring dried oatmeal in and out of containers, and bending straws.
