Play with Pattern Blocks

These blocks are a nice way to keep those fine-motor skills sharp. You can use them in many ways-you can place the blocks on the cards to create pre-determined shapes or patterns, or you can make your own designs (the former is probably easier for those with more signficant cognitive impairment). You can even just sort them by shape and color if making patterns is too hard/frustrating. This activity is lots of fun for grandkids, too, so it’s a great way to get some intergenerational fun started!
