Making Mealtime Meaningful: Discover how we're giving back with the 12T Cares program →

We love the fall season more than anyone else that we know. If they ever needed someone who could function as a spokesperson for the season, we would be willing to step up to the plate.

Whether you are a fall decoration king or you are looking for the perfect treats to get your bake on, this season allows for so much additional creativity. Fall crafts give us the chance to stand out from the crowd. And this tutorial that we are about to share with you is perfect for those dreary fall days when you do not have any other way to pass the time.

Happy fall y’all! 🥦 wait… broccoli emoji? For a craft? And fall? That’s right folks. We used BROCCOLI as a tool to paint with. “Why? Are you out of paint brushes?” Welll…… ——————————————— Firm vegetables and fruit are great tools to incorporate into crafts. They require different grips so this can help with fine motor development ✍🏾 . It’s also beneficial for those picky eaters! Yes, they have an Emmy nomination for their performance of “no carrots!!!” But, when they are encouraged to have fun with the food and paint with it, they are using one of their senses without even realizing it, TOUCH. Touching the food makes kiddos more open to trying it instead of going directly to a bite. ——————————————— #pediatric #pediatrictherapy #broccoli #happyfallyall #happyfall #fallcrafts #painting #pediatricoccupationaltherapy #pediatricspeechtherapy #pediatricphysicaltherapy #speechtherapy #occupationaltherapy #physicaltherapy #occupationaltherapystudent #feeding #feedingtherapy #crayola #momsofinstagram #momsofmountpleasant #halloween #spookyszn
