We've been a little busy here at Julia's World Project, moving some things around and adding a couple of new pages. We've pulled over all the activities from to have them in one place here on Julia's blog. They are more at home here and have a wider audience who will enjoy and use them with students and children living with developmental disabilities.

Each activity comes with instructions on how to put them together. They have been really popular with the teachers I serve and family members and day service organizations in the community. So now you have over 25 to choose from plus all the items from the printable page will be moved to the new Freebies page soon, so when you visit be sure to bookmark it and pin it to your board to share with a link back to our page. We invite you to explore your choices on our new page here
