Welcome to Growing Hands-On Kids

Are you struggling to find age-appropriate activities that build skills and challenge your child? Every child develops in a sequence of skills that are the building blocks for their future learning. Children need multiple opportunities to develop these skills in a variety of ways and learning styles.

I believe that all children can reach their fullest possible potential through hands-on play and developmentally appropriate activities.

My mission is to provide developmental tips, tools, and strategies to help you grow hands-on kids.

Whether you are a parent, educator, therapist or other professional, this site is for you. Welcome!
