OT Activity of the Day:
Turkey in a Bag!
Target Age Range: 1 and up
This activity is perfect for those young toddlers. While their older brothers and sisters are building turkeys out of play doh (yesterday's Activity of the Day), the younger siblings can make a turkey in a bag! All you need is a large plastic bag, paint, and a permanent marker.
First you can trace yours, or your child's, hand on the bag with the permanent marker. Tip: I would highly suggest an adult do this as the marker is permanent! Next pour paint into the bag, I only used a few colors but you can pour in as many colors as you want. Finally, seal the bag, pushing out as much air as possible. Tip: you can even tape the bag closed if you would like. You are now ready to hand the bag off and watch your young child push the paint around in the bag. This is the perfect activity to promote finger isolation!
