    If your have scissors at home, practice cutting lines with your child to create this simple car wash.  (DO NOT leave your child unattended with scissors.)   See if your child can do it on their own, as you observe, or do a hand over hand motion to help your child stay on the line and moving in a forward direction, emphasizing to open and close each time.

    Sensory:   Make a homemade car wash with your child and wash the cars together!  If you aren't feeling creative, just get out two bowls (one with warm soapy water and one with plain warm water and have him/her practice washing the car then rinsing it clean.  Go one step further and have him/her dry it off with a towel once it's clean.
