OT Activity of the Day:
Popsicle Sticks for all
Target Age Range: 4 and up
This year Hanukkah and Christmas fall around the same time, Hanukkah starts on the 24th while Christmas is on the 25th. No matter which you celebrate, today we have a craft for both!
Grab your popsicle sticks, markers, stickers, glitter, glue, tape and just about anything else you'd like to use to decorate! This activity really promotes fine motor manipulation (how your child moves and uses their fingers). This is important because it's a necessary skill, or ability, for handwriting and fine motor skills. Coloring on the popsicle stick is a great way to promote fine motor control, another necessary ability for writing.
This craft can be an ornament for a tree, a window, or even a mantel. Enjoy!
