OT Activity of the Day:
Build a Snowman
Target Age Range: 3 and up
Today we're building a snowman inside! This is a great way to occupy your kiddos inside during these cold winter months. All you'll need is some construction paper, white paper or even paper plates (for the body).
This can be set up in one of several ways. You can have your child cut out all the pieces or you can have them pre made. I've actually made half of the pieces and will be having my clients identify what's missing and then make those extra pieces. I'm also going to add movement to the activity by having the children animal walk to pick up the pieces. If you do not want to add extra movement, walking to gather these pieces will be just fine! You can talk about the steps to building a snowman and collect the items in order, or you can use dice and assign each body part with a number.
Today's activity targets your child's sequencing, body awareness and provides movement input. Enjoy!
