Holiday Tips from FASD Think Tank

The holiday season is upon us and this can be both a wonderful and stressful time for families. Take a peek at the tips posted by the FASD Think Tank for making the most of this busy time of year. My favourite strategy is the first one on their list – having a “go bag” or “busy bag” for your event filled with things to occupy your child if they need a break from the action. Some of their suggestions are a headset, colouring books, washable crayons or markers, paper, playdough, music, or a craft. I think it’s key to have a bag ready to go (either in the vehicle or in a special spot) so it’s prepared when you need it. Some students do well having a bag or box like this in the classroom too. What do you like to include in your child’s “busy bag”?
