If you’re anything like me the last thing you want is MORE sugar for your children. My oldest son is hyped up 24/7, the last thing I want for Easter is a bunch of gummies and chocolate galore!

So I’ve decided to compile some toys that will not only benefit you (zero sugar) but help your child as well. If you’ve been following our story for some time now you would know that Jaxson is diagnosed with Dyrk1a Syndrome. With his diagnosis comes global developmental and intellectual disabilities, fine motor delays, speech delays, and more.

My favorite toys are the Melissa & Doug wooden puzzle pieces! We use them a lot in his Occupational Therapy sessions. They help Jaxson work on his fine motor skills, he’s almost caught up to toddlers his age. He just needs to work on threading and stacking blocks.
Next up on our list of Easter Gift Ideas are some threading toys. This helps Jaxson and other children with their pincer grasp (fine motor) and problem solving skills.
Jaxson has grown increasingly interested in this Poke-a-Dot book during Speech Therapy. He can’t get enough of the dots, he pushes and pushes to his heart’s content!
Here are some unique Easter Gift ideas. Where I am from (Okinawa, Japan) rainy season begins in May and ends in June. It literally rains non-stop! What better way to keep your little tykes warm and dry from the rain? These Car Seat Poncho’s from Birdy Boutique are cozy, durable, and warm. We have one for Jaxson and we love it and get many comments about it!
Well there you have it! We absolutely love and swear by these Developmental Toys! Early Intervention and Developmental Toys have definitely helped our peanut over come his fine motor delay. We’ve met a couple families with Dyrk1a Syndrome and they are astonished with what he can do.
