I know that many therapists love and use the game Rush Hour to work on some skills. I have a tendency to dislike playing these types of games myself as I don’t really like the challenge, but this Rush Hour Jr Game edition is easier to play, and if you get stuck, there are cheater instructions (which I used for the higher levels). One thing that I found I would use this game for, is to work on visual perception and having the kids place the cars to match the game cards.
The game comes with the board, and a pack of cards that you use to set up the cars for each level. The goal of the game is to slide the cars around the board in order to get the white ice cream truck through the traffic and out the opening on the opposite side. I will have the kids set up the board to match the cards, and then we can practice following the directions on the cheater move cards to solve the puzzle if it is too difficult for them to do it themselves. I may buy another one so that I can have two kids do it at the same time, or they could just take turns and work together. The game does not require really good fine motor skills to play, but you do have to place the cars in a precise place.
