OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 3 and up
With all the holidays that are upon us, decorating is something that's sure to be on your mind! Today we are using our old wine corks, some paint, and creating a string of "lights".
If you don't have wine corks, you can easily use a top to a bottle or even a cotton ball or q-tip. All of these will help promote an appropriate grasp for those young toddlers. In addition to promoting an age appropriate tripod grasp, this is a great activity to work on visual attention and control as the lights must be on the "string"!
If you're looking for an extra challenge, create a pattern for your child to follow or you can practice writing letters or words by writing some of the color names.
