OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 3 and up
I've been doing this activity all week, it's quick, fun and a great way to work on scissor skills!
All you need is a piece of paper and some scissors. The paper can be white, however sometimes kids just want to make a pink, or blue, or green snowflake. Once you've settled on a piece of paper, start folding! This is a great way to work on your child's visual motor skills. The ability to fold paper and have the ends match is something that is developed by the age of 4. Have your child fold the paper in half and then in half again. Once you have a square, begin to cut! You and your child can snip off the corners, cut small triangles or half circles into the paper or just snip the paper all around.
So grab those scissors and start snipping! Enjoy!
