Awesome ideas!! Thank you! I think my son would get the most excited doing it in brown sugar or regular sugar. Humm.... I might just have to try that! :-D

I have a child with Autism who hated to write. The muscle tone in her hands was low too. I decided to homeschool for an entire week without a pencil anywhere close and used a lot of these ideas. It was amazing! She loved the variety.

One other thing we did was sidewalk chalk on the driveway. She took her spelling test that way. I'm sure my neighbors were confused by our walkway full of compound words. ;)
