OT Activity of the Day:
Fine Motor Heaven!
Target Age Range: 2 and up
It's September and for me this means the start to apple picking, pumpkins, and all things Fall! So today we're starting off September right with an apple activity. You can easily scale this activity up or down depending on the level, or age, of your child.
If you have an older child, they can absolutely cut out the tree and put the tree together. However if your child is younger you can always pre-make the tree.
I then used both stickers and hole punch remains as the apples. The stickers will be easier to use and wonderful fine motor manipulation practice for the younger kiddos. The hole punch remains will be a great fine motor strength and manipulation exercise for the older kiddos (first they use the hole puncher and then they get to use the remains). I've also seen similar activities where the child is matching letters on the tree.
There are truly so many options! Enjoy!
