Tiggly Play Date

This was one end of the table. We had a brother and sister, and then 6 classmates of the brother over.

Recently, I was asked to help a family host a play date for their son with Angelman Syndrome. The Mom invited 6 boys to her house to play with her son. Between the two of us, we had 4 iPads and 4 sets of Tiggly Toys to play with. Initially, play began with only two Tiggly Word Sets and one Tiggly Counts Set on the table. Everyone was fine with sharing toys amongst themselves.

All of the Tiggly Word apps were played with over and over. Someone would be playing with one app and then everyone wanted to go over and play with that app as well.

During one of our EdAppTalk’s Facebook group chats recently Alison Rumball shared how she helped a parent host a Tiggly App Party over the Winter Break. We thought that this was such a brilliant idea we asked her to share in hopes of inspiring others! 

None of the kids had seen the apps/toys before. It was mostly Grade 2’s and they loved them all. I initially did not give them Tiggly Shapes as I thought they might think it was too young for them but Tiggly Draw turned out to be their favourite and where they spent the most time. Thanks Alison
