teach kids that some things are within their control (Play-Doh problems) and some things are not (rock problems). give them a set to take home as a reminder. Throughout therapy ask, is that a rock problem or a Play-Doh problem?
Stones painted as strawberries when put around strawberry plants in the spring will keep birds from eating your ripened berries. Birds experience the stones first and will think the ripened berries are rocks.
