OT Activity of the Day:
Tic Tac Toe with a Halloween Twist
Target Age Range: 4 and up
This is such a fun activity. This activity is for those kiddos who need extra work with their fine motor skills but maybe hate traditional table top work. Most kids love Tic Tac Toe, and with this version the real work is done before you even play!
First, you need to make your playing pieces! I have chosen to make pumpkins and monsters, though don't feel limited to just these two options. Your child will have to focus on using their fine motor manipulation, bilateral coordination, and overall hand/finger strength to make the play doh playing pieces. (In addition to play doh, I also used googly eyes and pipe cleaners.) Then, you play Tic Tac Toe!
Fine motor and fun, the perfect OT blend! Enjoy!
