OT Activity of the Day:
Ice Cream Cone
Target Age Range: 5 and up
It's Summer, well almost, and that means it's time for ice cream and popsicles. And what better way to pass the summer hours than making a little ice cream craft?!
All you need is some construction paper, a pair of scissors and your imagination. You can use traditional ice cream "colors" or "flavors" or you can create your own. Use some glitter or other scraps of paper and make sprinkles. Use makers or crayons to decorate as well. Another idea?After you've finished the craft, you can have your older kids write about their ice cream cone!
During this craft you're practicing scissor use, drawing circles or triangles (both prewriting shapes), and working on bilateral coordination (using scissors with one hand and turning the paper with the other).
