Candy Cane Ring Stack
I hope that you can make out what this photo shows. (I cropped to hide her face and ID the facility). Attaching the rings to a candy cane shaped ring stack adds a nice motor planning challenge. I also attached a massager to the bottom so that the activity vibrates making her more aware that she needs to stabilize with one hand while working. A couple of kids did this today while standing on top of the horse.
We had a bit of a warm spell today so worked with no heat and were allowed to go on the trails, opening the indoor doors without costing a fortune in heat.It was exciting after being indoors for the past 2 weeks.
