difficult child 2 is doing alot of fine motor work with the Occupational Therapist and she has made some suggestions for stuff for him to do at home. But they're pretty general. Arts and Crafts projects, handwriting practice, etc. I've shopped around a various craft & art stores, but can't seem to find anything that difficult child really wants to do. He likes building models, but he gets frustrated with the small parts. The level 1 models are too easy for him, but the level 2's are too hard as they have sooo many small pieces. (I mean tweezer-size small!) I also looked at alot of the scrapebook type stuff, but it's too foo-foo for him. He didn't want to do any of the clay stuff we looked at either as he doesn't like the way it feels on his hands. Painting is out as I have too much 'new' stuff in the house to let him get paint everywhere - which he would. So, anybody got any ideas/suggestions? I'm trying to find some kits or instructions/plans for small wood-working type projects or something for him. Something more 'boyish' that won't insult his new-found understanding of boys being 'different' from girls. I want to find something that will interest him, or else getting him to do it will be more fight than it's worth. I know Craftsman makes kits that include smaller versions of real metal Craftsman tools, but I bought him those for Christmas last year. He's already done them all. He enjoyed them, but I think they were a little on the easy side for him. I did get him a Chemistry set from the hobby store. He likes doing the experiments and alot of them do involve good fine motor skills & hand/eye coordination. But I know the kit will only hold his interest for a few days. Then he'll have done all the experiments and be ready to move on to something else.
