OT Month: Plus, Book and fine motor Toy Give-aways

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It may not be apparent here on my blog, but I am a bit of a non-joiner.  When people ask what I am doing for OT month, my typical response is “Was I supposed to do something?”.

ot month 1

Well this month, the planets have aligned correctly, and I have and am doing something. (Do you hear the singing?)

ot month 2

My daughter’s high school careers class asked me to come and speak about my career.  How thoughtful of them to request this during OT month so that it can all tie in so perfectly.

ot month 3

I gave a little talk about OT in general, and then got more specific about pediatrics since that is what I do. I set up different activities around the room for the kids to try out.  I brought my scooterboard, chopsticks, clothespin games, bouncy balls, pom poms with tongs, KBEU dad, mom, and baby, and theraputty.

The kids had a lot of fun, and I think that maybe they might have learned something about OT too.

ot month 5

Now for some even more amazing participation on my part (really, my husband would be shocked). In celebration of OT month, I am going to have four different give-aways. 

I will be giving away:

 

    I am posting all four of the give-aways in one post, but you have to sign up for each one of them separately. It could theoretically be possible for one person to win all four of these give-aways (especially if only one person signs up).

    To enter, just post a comment stating what you are hoping to win. If you want to enter all four, then you need to enter 4 comments. That’s it. Make sure that you add yourself to the rafflecopter entry of the give-away that you are interested in below. This helps me to pick a random winner.

    These give-aways will last for 2 weeks, because I have noticed that as busy therapists and parents, we don’t always have time to check on blogs every week, so I want everyone to have a chance to enter if they want. The give-away will close on 4/24/12.

    Entries are only open to those in the United States due to shipping costs.

    The K-BEU Mom pillow and baby are items sent to me from the manufacturer to review. They have been used for review purposes and in my OT month presentation at my daughter’s high school. That is the only use that they have seen. The K-BEU Dad and the two books were purchased by me, are new, and I decided to use them as a give-away. The “Just Take a Bite” book was an accidental duplicate purchase (I now have two of them) so I decided to do a give-away rather than return it. Some lucky person will benefit from my error.

    Let the games begin. And may the odds be ever in your favor.

    I am always looking for small animals/items to hide in putty and do tong/tweezer activities with… what are you grabbing in your first picture, and where did you get them?

      They are little rubber dinosaurs that I found in the target dollar spot a couple of weeks ago. They came in a little egg.

    I am a new therapist and the two books and two plush toys would be an amazing addition to my OT bag. I trying to get as many new things as I can and be creative. The book Just take a bite, would be helpful with my pre-kers that are having eating trouble and texture aversion. The two toys would be great for my younger k-2nd grade kids to figure out and work with. Personally I would love the fine motor book, take ten to get more ideas. I love your site and have shared it with all of my OT co-workers.

    Happy OT month!!
    Technical errors on my part…if you get a blank contest entry for the FM book, it’s from me! I tried to enter but obviously had some problems getting the comment section to work. Thought I would take a second to tell you that I enjoy your site. Thanks for spreading the O.T. Love! 🙂 -Tracy

    I would love to win the K-BEU Mum Pillow and Baby. I live in Thailand but would happily cover the postage costs if I won. Is that OK? I am adopting a boy out here who has lots of sensory processing difficulties so this looks ideal for him!
