Hammer Time!

The boys had not really gotten out the toy hammers and golf tees since last July.  Cutie Pie decided today was the day to revisit the fun of light hammering.  At first he tried to drive the tees into the carpet without much success.  I did not have any rigid packing foam on hand like last time so we had to improvise…

Our pool noodles have been wintering in the garage.  They turned out to be the perfect solution for Cutie Pie’s proprioceptive project.

Gotta love how linear his golf tees are...


Fun Hammering Activity

This is the best kind of entertainment: fun, cheap and easy.

Back when my boys were in Labschool they would occasionally do this hammering activity to increase proprioceptive input.  I was looking for some fun things for the boys to do on Sunday (besides swimming for the 1000th time this summer) and remembered that we had all of the materials to hammer away for a at least half an hour.


Sturdy packing foam (I got ours from the box our new printer came in)

Toy hammers (from tool kits the kids already had)

Wooden golf tees (on sale at Wal-mart for $1)
