OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 4 and up
This activity is easily scaled up or down depending on the age of your child. Today we're targeting bilateral coordination (tracing your hand) and fine motor manipulation/wrist forearm rotation (ripping paper). All you need is some construction paper, scissors, markers, and glue.
For those Preschoolers: Depending on the age of your child, you can have the hand precut or you can trace their hand on white paper and have them color the body (staying in the lines as best they can-fine motor control). Once you have the body, glue it on paper and take your crayons or markers and add the facial details! Then rip up colored paper and add them to the body for feathers!
For the Kindergartners and up: Have them trace their own hand and then cut it out. For ease, you can always take a thick marker and trace other their line to emphasis the guideline. The rest is all the same. You can even add an element of writing!
