Try to prepare dinner in a new way. Ask your child, “What if we only used one arm to make dinner tonight” See what you can do easily and what’s really hard. Share ideas back and forth about how you manage with only one arm. Then try, “What if you use your right arm and I use my left arm?” What is easier together?
