Play is an essential aspect of people’s lives of all age groups, and it’s necessary for young children. It’s not just about giving children the opportunity to bond with their families and friends. Still, it also contributes to their physical, mental well-being, and emotional and social.
A disability shouldn’t prevent the child’s enjoyment, and however, certain activities might have to be altered slightly to accommodate wheelchairs.
To help you get inspired to get you started, we’ve provided some fun accessible activities that are wheelchair-friendly for kid can play with:
Arts and Crafts
Participating in activities like arts and crafts lets your child express their creativity and use their imagination to follow their path. It’s an enjoyable experience that will help them gain knowledge through a building, designing, and analyzing. Crafts and arts can aid them in expressing their feelings, thoughts and ideas and positively affect their mood.
To add a social element to your child’s art and craft time, invite a few of their friends to join them to help one another and discuss their projects. To avoid making a messy mess, place an old sheet on the floor and set up a craft table outside in the backyard!
Gardening together is an ongoing project that you, as well as your child, can complete with your child!
Children are fond of getting their hands dirty! Gardening together is an excellent opportunity for your child to explore the plants’ world around them and watch them bloom. By the size of the wheelchair your child is using or scooter, you can build a raised garden or plant trays placed on a table or the wheelbarrow filled with soil.
Instead of flowering, you could choose to plant herbs instead. Basil or Parsley are among the easiest herbs to cultivate. It is essential to schedule time every week to water them and watch their growth. After the herbs have grown, they can cook with your family! Caption & Tag: Growing a herb garden in the same space is fantastic for a long-term relationship.
You and your child can work on a project that you can work on with your child!
