OT Activity of the Day:
Connecting the Dots
Target Age Range: 3 and up
Want an easy and fun way to promote fine motor development? Use stickers, markers/crayons/chalk, and construction paper and make some simple dot to dots! Here I've used star stickers to make a constellation. Now I'm almost 100% positive that this does not actually represent a real constellation, I think I left out a star, but you get the idea.
This activity is great because you're promoting fine motor manipulation with peeling the stickers and then fine motor control when you connect the stickers. You can also allow your child to be as creative with the stickers as they would like before connecting them. Label/name what you draw to practice letter formation. Enjoy!
