Looking for a different heavy weight break for your "charges?" This is an oldie, but goodie with a twist. We all have been through the backpack, even with their favorite characters on them. Yawn. Of course their is the "carry these books around the school." So, my suggestion is this; take a stuffed animal and stuff it with rice packs. Always, verify with the ot/pt therapist to make sure this is an acceptable weight break and how much you want to use. The kids love taking doggie for a walk or having monkey sit on their lap. The stuffed animals provide a fun, friendly and squeezy break for the kids. How can they not work when they have a fuzzy friend helping!
