Fun Thanksgiving Crafts for the Whole Family!

Fall is my favorite time of year!  The cooler weather, the beautiful leaves, the smell in the air…so many things to be grateful for!  As a mom and an OT, I love to find books, crafts, and other fun activities to go with every season and holiday.  Below are some of my favorite crafts for Thanksgiving.

Paper Bag Fall Tree



I love this fall tree from a fine motor standpoint!  I also love that you can adapt it and have children make larger leaves and write down names of people or things that they are grateful for and then staple them on.  pikadillycharm.blogspot.com

Hand Turkey



This is an oldie, but a goodie.  Great for crossing midline and bilateral coordination skills.  Have your child trace his or her foot and hand.  Your child can trace the same hand multiple times or increase the challenge by tracing his/her dominant hand using his/her non-dominant hand.  To work on strengthening, simply trace only one hand and stack several papers together so your child is cutting out multiple “feathers” at one time.  You could also do a similar activity by having your child paint (or you could paint) his/her foot and hands and press them onto paper.

Great place, glad we found them. Been going to Medina over 2 months now and he loves Lauryn and Kyler. Wish they had more ABA therapy places available... live in Wooster and long drive everyday.

My 11 year old son has dyslexia and has made noticeable gains in working At LLA THERAPY. Katie is strong in her approach toward him and also keeps him comfortable enough to perform well. We will continue visiting both the Fairlawn and Hudson offices and recommend them highly.

My 9 year old just completed about 9 months of weekly speech sessions (due to his stuttering) with Matt Hagge at LLA and we are thrilled with the experience and results. What I thought might be a negative (what kid really wants to go to speech class?) was made very positive by Matt, and my son never hesitated or complained when we talked about class. He really enjoyed it and really took what Matt taught him to heart. His speech has been greatly improved and we definitely recommend LLA. Thank you so much!

My son’s Occupational Therapist, Jess, is an amazing OT! She gives practical tips on working with my son at home and school!

I cannot say enough good things about LLA Therapy. My daughter was a client of Teal Simmons’ for approximately 2 years and was just released from speech therapy! She was diagnosed with Apraxia in 2015 and worked with Teal twice a week. Through Teal’s application of PROMPT therapy, my daughter had age-appropriate speech after one year. All of the staff we interacted with at LLA were absolutely wonderful. They really care about what they do and making sure your child achieves their goals.

LLA Therapy has been an excellent experience for my son as well as my family! My son always asks, "When can I go see Ms. Jeannine again, is it Monday??" He has also made huge gains in only 5 months! I would highly recommend LLA and have already shared my experience with friends looking for services!

We are so grateful for our Speech Therapist Ms.Teal. We have seen a great improvement with our sons confidence and communication abilities since we have started "Prompt" therapy. What we love the most about LLA and Ms. Teal is that Kohl feels comfortable and relaxed which has played a critical role in his progress. Thank you Ms. Teal for all you have done.

They have helped in numerous ways. Speech, OT and behavioral. I've had numerous compliments on my son's progress thanks in very large part to LLA. I would recommend LLA before I recommend our local children's hospitals, though they are good, they don't have the staff that LLA does.

We had a great experience with Matt Hagge at LLA! Our Middle School age son was becoming very conscious of his voice, which is nasal due to a cleft palate. Matt helped him to better form his sounds and project his voice in a way that makes the unavoidable nasality less noticeable.Our son is more confident and outgoing & even took on a speaking role in the church play. Matt has the perfect personality to relate with our son, and we would recommend him to anyone needing speech therapy services!

LLA Therapy has been an excellent experience for our daughter. I would highly recommend LLA. Miss Grace was so amazing and I can't believe how quickly our daughter showed improvement. Thank you!
