OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 4 and up
By the age of 4 most children should be ready to start cutting out more complex shapes like circles. A great way to practice this skill is to expose your child to various cutting activities. Here I've made a popsicle out of construction paper and then decorated the popsicle with small pieces of paper and stickers.
This is a great way to not only work on scissor skills, but you can also work on improving fine motor manipulation but adding the stickers, small pieces of paper that you need to glue and anything more you can think of!
For the older kids you can add an element of writing by asking the child to describe and write what they made! Enjoy!
