What people are saying…
“Passport to FUNction’s Park Kit is truly a parent’s best friend at the park! As an occupational therapist, I am always looking for ways I can support my client’s fine motor skills, strength, balance, coordination, motor planning, and sensory processing at the park. This all-in-one portable tool kit allows me to quickly access the materials I need to enhance every child’s play experience! The toys included can be used in countless ways and supports kid’s imagination and creativity. The Park Kit also allows for natural social skill opportunities as other kids at the park won’t resist the chance to jump in and play! The kit has now become one of my favorite therapeutic tools and comes with me to all my park sessions. I highly recommend the Passport Park Kit!”
-Korrie S., Pediatric Occupational Therapist
“I LOVE using the kit with the kids at the park! It allows them to engage in challenging activities that provide them with the input they need, adding to their experience at the park. It also helps socially, as other kids at the park are interested in participating and trying the different tools. Thank you for putting this great kit together!”
