OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 2 and up
This is a great activity for your toddler or preschooler. (I would suggest laying a towel on the floor first and then putting the tray of ice on top just to catch any excess ice or water that may escape!) This activity can occupy your child while you're cooking dinner, or folding laundry, or catching up on some work.
Just grab a rimmed pan/cookie sheet, some ice and any manipulatives that you'd like! In my ice tray I'm focusing on fine motor skills with kitchen tongs, scissor tongs, and a spoon. This is a great tray idea for your 2-3 year old. They can build hand strength with the kitchen tongs, practice scissor use with the scissor tongs and even practice wrist/forearm rotation with the spoon!
