OT Activity of the Day:
Happy 4th of July!!
Target Age Range: 5 and up (though you can easily scale this down for the younger hands)
All you need is a paper plate, some markers, scissors, a hole puncher, and something to hang the paper plate with. If you don't have a hole puncher, rest assured you can easily make a hole with some scissors.
First you use the markers and decorate the plate however you would like, I used patriotic colors, but you can do whatever. Then you use the scissors to cut the plate in a spiral, I used a gray marker to make a guide line for cutting and it blends in nicely. Last you use the hole puncher, or a pair of scissors, to make a hole in the center of the plate and then hang it up! All this targets marker use, cutting skills, and hand strength if you use the hole puncher.
Your kids can help decorate the house for the holiday and work on their fine motor skills at the same time!
Happy 4th of July! Stay safe and have fun!
