OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 4 and up
All you need are golf tees, play doh, and poms or cotton balls. You can set up the play doh and tees however you would like on the table. The challenge is to get the poms, or cotton balls, to balance on top of the tees-you'll need to practice lots of strength grading and light touch! Then you can use your fingers to flick the poms off the tees, just like golf! You can make more of a golf course on the table using construction paper and other supplies, or just assign point values on the table and keep track of who gets what.
This is a great way to work on fine motor manipulation and to have fun at the same time. Enjoy!
