OT Activity of the Day:
Halloween Fun/Sensory Box
Target Age Range: 3 and up
I went to Target and walked the dollar section for these goodies. In this box I have pumpkins, ghosts, spiders, bats, and skeletons. While I have yet to add other modalities, feel free to add other textures like moon sand, poms, cotton balls, rice, beans, rice and beans, etc...
The best part of a sensory box is that you can add fine motor manipulatives like tongs, scissor tongs, and small empty containers, like spice containers, that open with a twist top. By continuously exposing your child to these manipulatives they will be more comfortable with them and master the skills quickly.
