Here's a free app that my kids like---O Christmas Tree by R2Integration. There are several tree decorating apps out there---I liked this one because it's free, and the graphics are realistic. The best part is that when you want to start over, you shake the iPad and all of the decorations plummet to the ground. (The kids have loved that part the best, too!)
Touch the ornament so that it shows up in the middle of the wreath on
the left. Then touch the tree wherever you want the ornaments. It has
cute sound effects too.
I've made a simple communication/choice board to go with this. The reason is so that the kids will tell me what they want before they start touching the iPad screen. I want them to make some requests (verbal and non-verbal) and use some joint referencing skills. The iPad is the tool but the child and adult need to communicate. Augmenting the app with a board helps this process. Have fun!!!!
