OT Activity of the Day:
Paper plate fish
Target Age Range: 4 and up
Grab a paper plate, some scissors, crayons and you too can make a paper plate fish. This is a great way to work on improving scissor skills, crayon use, and fine motor manipulation. All you have to do is color the paper plate, cut a triangle out of the side for the mouth and it's a fish!
You can make guide lines for your child to cut on or they can cut any shape mouth they would like. Again, crayons target your child's hand strength and endurance so sneak those in instead of markers if possible. Feel free to add other manipulatives into the activity by using stickers, hole punchers, tearing small pieces of paper, and anything else you can think of!
