OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 3 and up
This is a great activity for the younger kiddo and older kiddo. I know I did a lacing craft recently and the craft was such a hit with the kiddos it was a no-brainer to showcase another lacing activity. Here, we're making spider webs!
First I grabbed a paper plate and I cut out the middle of the plate. For the younger kiddo, I would definitely suggest the adult completing this part. For the older kiddo, challenge them to cut out the center. Next I punched holes into the edges of the paper plate. Again for the younger kiddo, I would have the adult do this part and for the older kiddo challenge their hand strength by having them punch the holes. I would suggest no more than 10-11 holes, I made too many in my model and paid the price. Then I grabbed some yarn, wrapped the start of the yarn in tape as a makeshift needle and started lacing. Lastly, I made a small spider to glue onto my spider web. By having your child cut out the spider you're not only working on lacing, but scissor skills as well! It's a win/win!
