OT Activity of the Day:
Shaving Cream Snowman
Target Age Range: 3 and up
This is a fun no-mess sensory activity for all those preschoolers out there. All you'll need is a sealable plastic bag (the size is up to you), shaving cream, and construction paper/scissors or anything else you would like to use to decorate!
First you can have the child open up the plastic bag, a great way to work on grip stability and fine motor manipulation. Then spray the shaving cream into the bag (hand strength), you don't have to fill the bag up, it will all spread out once it's in the bag. Then you can seal the bag, and decorate and create a snowman! I used construction paper and scissors (scissor skills), however if you have a younger kid, you can always find some stickers for them to use instead, another great fine motor manipulation activity.
Have fun and enjoy!
