OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 2 and up
I found these sticky monkeys in the dollar section at Target and man have they been a hit! If you throw them at the wall, they stick for a few seconds before rolling down to the floor. This is a very motivating way to practice throwing over and underhand. At first you can have the child throw them any way they want, once they're hooked then suggest to copy your throwing ("Look how fast I can throw if I throw like this!). Practice more precise hand eye coordination by using painter's tape to tape a target on the wall, how close can they get to hitting the target?
These toys don't leave any sticky residue or mark, at least none that I've seen yet. In addition to the monkeys I also bought the worms and lizards. Throwing fun for days!
