When the Moon Hits Your Eye Like a Big Pizza Pie!

Making a home-made pizza from a box and cutting out cookies with a press are two of my favorite activities because they stimulate the senses: smell, taste (did I put my finger in my mouth then back in the dough?), touch/sensory. These activities promote trunk/core stability and provide an opportunity for weight-bearing through the arms which is calming for the central nervous system. They also promote fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination. If that's not enough: It's a bonding activity between the supervising adult and child and can easily involve the whole family. These are some of my favorite childhood memories.
