OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 5 and up
This is an activity that would be good for kiddos who struggle to efficiently use and coordinate both arms/hands together. These would be the kiddos who struggle to use a helper hand when writing (the hand that holds the paper), or struggle to use both hands efficiently when cutting and holding paper.
All you need is an old cooking tray, empty toilet paper and paper towel rolls, tape and marbles. You can design the maze or you can have your child design the maze. Either way, I had a great time putting this together and then testing it out. You can challenge your child to have the marble pass through all obstacles or you can time your child to complete the marble maze in a more specific way.
