OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 4 and up
Today we have a fun Thanksgiving activity that targets your child's hand strength and scissor skills. Today we're making some harvest corn!
First we used our hole puncher and punched some holes in yellow, orange, and brown paper. Next we cut out 3 oval shapes, one in white paper and 2 in green paper. Then we took the three oval shapes and glued them together so they look like corn. Last we took the hole punch clippings and glued them onto the corn. Not only will your child be working to improve their hand strength and scissor abilities, however they will also be working on fine motor manipulation to place all the clippings on the corn. For those older kiddos, you can always add an element of writing!
