Working on your child's motor skills from an early age is a vital part of their development. Octobox activities are a fun, creative, and proactive way to help improve a child's motor skills.
Octobox combines specially formulated crafts with engaging demonstration videos to give extra support to your child & caregivers. It’s a convenient & affordable way to help your child develop their motor skills.
Octobox is developed by a team led by multi-award winning OT, Jessica Kennedy. Jess is the Senior Paediatric Occupational Therapist of her own private practice whereby she completes her intervention in the child's home environment.
Jess noticed a growing issue amongst children's motor skill development and not just amongst children getting OT intervention. Important skills such as drawing, colouring, scissor skills and even balancing on one leg were delayed which may not seem significant, but they are the fundamental skills needed to complete coordinated movements such as dressing, typing, writing and cycling that are vital as they grow older. Jess saw the need for an immediate solution to help develop motor skills in a structured, fun and ongoing basis.
The goal is to get kids more active, encourage motor skills through activities, coach parents & teachers, support skill development and embrace positive child development. All our resources are designed by Jess who is passionate about creating fun and enjoyable learning opportunities for kids.
The world has enough plastic. You deserve to feel guilt-free about improving your child’s motor skills. That’s why we’re committed to using minimal plastic and reducing excess waste.
Our custom wooden OT Toys in our Whizz Kid Projects are designed and produced right here in Ireland. We do not include items that you likely have in your home or school already - things like tweezers, glue sticks, and sellotape. However, if you DO need these items, we’ll ship them to you. Our commitment to zero waste means we make zero profit on this part of our service.
I highly recommend Jess’s Octoboxes. These resources are really well thought out & give you everything you need along with online support. Thank you so much Jess!
Octobox - 3 Months
This is a great product and really well thought out and the video tutorials are excellent. My son has great fun following along and keeps asking to do more. The gross motor skills videos are great fun.
We're 2 weeks into our Octobox and my 8yr old with Dyspraxia is loving it! So refreshing to have a fun purpose to the many motor skills we practise. Instead of trying to draw on the lines we are helping a seagull to fly through the sky! The videos are so easy to follow and Jess' creativity can make stretches we have done numerous times seem loads more interesting as she takes us on an underwater adventure. Would recommend to anyone
It’s fab but my little lady has just turned 4 so some bits were a little difficult for her. She was able for most parts and loved it ! 1st
