OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 3 and up
There's something about Halloween colors that makes my heart happy. Here we're using a template and creating shadow bats!
This activity can be done several ways. I used corks (mostly because I didn't want to get my hands dirty so early in the morning), but you can easily use fingers! If you're using corks, this is a great way to work on promoting an age appropriate tripod grasp. If you're using fingers, this is a great way to promote finger isolation. If you have small kiddos you can tape the template down while they dot around. If you have older kiddos, you can have them hold the template as they dot, a great way to focus on bilateral coordination.
All in all, this is a great fine motor activity! Enjoy!
