We finally made an aluminum foil river today. I’d seen the idea floating around the blogosphere for awhile now, but had yet to attempt it myself. One of Trevor’s PT goals is to walk/run on uneven surfaces, so I thought this would be a great way to encourage that. He had to walk up and down a little grassy hill to play with the river. And of course, the boy loves water, so he had a fabulous time!
At first I just had out small boats that would fit in the river, but he wanted to bring all of his water toys out. So it was a good lesson in size comparison too. The toys that didn’t float down because they were too big, he ended up pulling them down the river himself. Other than wasting a lot of water, this activity was a great success 🙂
