OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 3 and up
So I just looked at the 15 day weather forecast and there are no chances for snow. While I'm sad that I don't get to sit on the couch and watch the snow fall, at least I can make a snowflake craft, right?!
This craft is great for your preschoolers and Kindergarteners. Twisting the pipe cleaners and putting beads on them is wonderful fine motor manipulation and visual motor practice. Two skills that will help support those writing muscles.
Grab a couple of pipe cleaners, I chose white and blue to go along with a winter theme, however you can use whatever colors you would like. Twist the middle of the pipe cleaners together until you're happy with the size of the snowflake and then start beading! I only did a few beads for the model, however you and your child can put as many beads on as you would like.
