OT Activity of the Day:
Home Made Kerplunk
Target Age Range: 4 and Up
Continuing on the theme of using old toilet paper rolls, I made a home made kerplunk game! All you need is an empty toilet paper roll, a hole puncher, some pipe cleaners and marbles.
This is a great way to work on upper limb stability and smooth controlled movements as you and your child carefully pull the pipe cleaners out without disturbing the marbles. Setting up and creating the game is also a great fine motor activity. It's targeting hand strength, problem solving, and fine motor manipulation.
