OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 3 and up
For many children learning to write letters, words, and sentences comes easily. For other children simply using pencil and paper doesn't always get the job done. Some children benefit from a multi sensory approach. This means that your child may learn best when multiple parts of their brain are targeted as they learn. If your child is struggling with writing, try adding a sensory approach.
Today we're writing in applesauce. I chose applesauce because of the Fall season, however you can use uncooked rice, pudding, whipped cream, shaving cream (do not eat!), or anything else that motivates your child. (If your child does not like wet textures, stick the dry!) Not only does this add the multi sensory approach, but an element of fun as well.
Have fun, and enjoy writing!
