Chicken pox, round 2, and a need to keep the healthy child from climbing the walls and a wish to give some nice associations through the body as an antidote to all the nasty itchy spots:
A trail with different surfaces to walk on barefoot: sheep skin, bread crumbs, exercise mat, bean bag, raisins, towel, plastic bags etc. Unfortunately the little patient got a bit too tired to concentrate but I think it is an idea I want to try again when she is better. If my children were older, I would also try blind folded them when guessing what they walk on.
We continued to use our senses then by smelling spices – our 3 yo is extremely interested in cooking now, and actually is a huge help in the kitchen. This the patient could do lying on the sofa, and she found it quite entertaining. This game reminds me of the sniffing game we used play in shops but have forgotten about lately.
