SpeakAZoo a fun app for toddlers! Great for potty time.

Hi mostly Mommies! 😉
I really don’t usually get an app that requires access to the microphone or asks me to set up an account. I’ve read their privacy policy and the security reasons for the account creation and I am reassured. I installed it and during one of our extended potty sitting sessions, we played Speak A Zoo. Wow!
This is one fun app with great animations that are clear. The level of interaction between app and toddler is good – he’s not just sitting and watching, there are choices to make and responses to give.
This is going on our list which is growing – see the Apps for toddlers page for a complete list where you can vote up apps you like and leave comments for other parents.
Thanks again for making the Mostly Mommies community!

Activities for autistic children online and offline – UPDATED

Hi Mommies! (mostly)

I feel bad when I see our visitors return and find no new activities posted! So this morning, I am putting in some time to list for you my favorite activities (both online and offline) and crafts. While they are fun to do with all your wee ones too, these can be especially fun and stimulating for autistic children.

This Sparkly Alphabet Water Bottle craft is fun to do and you will keep coming back to use it. The letters spinning and sparkling in the glittery water are sure to delight. 

Here is a list of 10 Gross Motor Activities for Autistic Children from the LovetoKnow Autism site. These will help maintain muscular stimulation and brain-body connection.

Drop me a line with your favorite activity and I will include it in the next update!
