Know a child who struggles to hold a pencil or do up their own buttons?

We know the perfect gift for them.

November 27, 2019

Let’s face it, being a parent during the holidays is stressful.

Kids make wish lists as long as your daily commute, you’re stressed about making the many upcoming weeks as magical and memorable for them as possible…and you’re about to spend a lot more time with your in-laws.

But for some of us, there is no wish list to go on. The children in our lives can’t tell us what they want because they lack the verbal skills to communicate or the fine motor skills to write a list.

Maybe your child needs a lot of one-on-one attention, and you simply don’t have the time or energy to decorate your home or bake all of the wonderful holiday creations that your mom used to make.

Maybe your child doesn’t do well in loud, busy, unfamiliar environments that you will no doubt feel obligated to take them to to celebrate with family and friends.  

If only there was a present you can give to your child, or any child in your life, that would help to make the holidays—and, well, every day—a bit easier by helping them build the skills that they are struggling with.

There is.

Unbox your child’s potential with the Skootle Box: a customized, curated box with four to six activities that work on skills that promote fine motor development, coordination, sensory regulation, and strength, designed by Skootle Box CEO/founder and Occupational Therapist (OT), Sabrina Adair.

It’s not only fun, but practical. Super practical. It will enhance your child’s sensory skills and will fuel their independence.

With over 15 years’ experience as an OT and being the mom of four kids, Sabrina gets it.

“The Skootle Box gives kids the mainstream games that they want to play, with guides that break down each activity into manageable steps to help build whichever skills your child needs,” she explains.

How it works:

1.    Choose: Try one box or sign up for the monthly subscription.

2.    Receive: An Occupational Therapist carefully selects 4-6 activities each month that focus on building  fine motor activities or sensory regulations that come in the box along with a guide on how to use each tool at your child’s varying levels.

3.    Enjoy: Play the different activities with your child and help them build their skillsets to help them succeed.

4.    Connect: You’ll be invited to connect with and learn from other parents and therapists via Skootle Box’s private Facebook group.

Alynn and Ivan, parents of three young boys, explained that it was fantastically refreshing to see their kids play with something that supported their learning that wasn’t on a screen.

Trang, a mom a four, shared how excited she was to get her son’s Skootle Box because he got to play fun games while improving his printing skills.

“I love when kids think they are playing but they are really building their coordination and fine motor skills,” Sabrina smiles. “Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses. The Skootle Box was created to strengthen those weaknesses. I have four children and I’ve been an Occupational Therapist for over 15 years, so I’ve done many different activities with lots of different levels of kids. I know what’s fun and beneficial. I’m so passionate about this business because I know that I can help children who are struggling. It’s really important to me.”
