OT Activity of the Day:
Paper Plate Skeleton
Target Age Range: 4 and up
After a brief hiatus, thanks to the cyber attack and an early fall cold, we're back! Today we're putting those scissor skills to good use and making a shape skeleton. This is a great activity to practice cutting out various shapes and perfect for those older preschoolers and Kindergarteners.
First we took a paper plate and cut off the bottom. Then we took some black construction paper and scissors and got to cutting. We used circles for the eyes, a triangle for the nose, and then squares for the teeth/mouth. As always, you can always adapt yours in anyway you would like. If your child is younger, you can always have the shapes pre-cut and you can work on the basic gluing sequence.
