Fun executive function ideas for Thanksgiving week
Thanksgiving week provides many opportunities to strengthen executive function skills without your child even realizing they’re learning! Baking treats is a delicious way to practice planning, organizing, and following multi-step directions. If your family is traveling, helping to plan the trip from beginning to end requires research, planning, prioritizing and flexible thinking. And for a little old-school, whole-family fun, board games like Monopoly, Clue, checkers, and chess help practice longer-term planning, strategic thinking, and even some mental math. Wishing you a great week with family and friends!
