Valentine’s Day Sensory and Motor Paths

Creating obstacle courses or motor/sensory paths are fun and pretty easy with the Valentine’s Day Sensory and Motor Path printables.  I especially like how easy it is to change them up by switching up the printables or changing the arrangement.  Check out one way of setting it up in the video below.  I also love to add the handprints to the wall for more vertical surface work!

No time to prep anything?  No worries, try Conversation Heart Brain Breaks that are digital!  Pull these up where you can utilize PowerPoint.  Project on your white board and let the kids pick their conversation hearts and move their bodies.  No white board?  Try playing it on your tablet(that’s what I do) with the free PowerPoint app.  A great option for traveling therapists.
