Eyeglasses Games

 (This is real life people.  An undershirt, sweatpants, and that hair..it's how we roll around here.)
This little treasure is very in to playing with, examining, and putting on eye glasses right now. 
She loves to spend hours on my lap moving my glasses around and taking them on and off.
This is an incredible game because it involves SO MUCH eye contact.
Eye contact is not easy to come by with our little one.
Trouble is she can be a bit rough on the real thing 
and I don't really want to encourage her to play with them
BUT
the eye contact is so good and she was so interested
that I decided to purchase several pairs of $1 reading glasses.
I popped out the lenses and keep these frames in several of her play areas.
SHE LOVES THEM!
She loves to put feathers in them, drop beans through them, and wiggle them up and down
all while I have them on of course.
It is great fun and she is SO cute in those little frames.
(Having her wear them works on her tactile defensiveness issues too!)
All of this therapy is taking place with this new eyeglasses game 
and there are so many benefits for her within the context of play.
I love to play
and
I am so thankful to have such a fun little one to play with me!

  2. You are doing an amazing job with your sweet girl. What a blessing you are to her...and I know she is to you, too! And so happy to see that you are fully funded for Anna Mei. I'd love to get together sometime for playtime with our kiddos!

  3. What a wonderful idea! We work on eye contact constantly with our little Mackenzie, as well...I may need to copy this idea!
