OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 2 years and up
If you have a shredder, then you have all you need to make a "snow box"! In celebration of the less than 1 inch of snow on the ground, I grabbed some shredder bits and created a themed sensory box.
In today's sensory box, I've added scissor tongs (perfect for those just beginning to cut), regular tongs (fine motor strength and manipulation) and magnetic letters. Placing letters in your sensory box is the perfect way to introduce your young child to the alphabet. You can place the sensory box and letters by the fridge so your child can place them on the fridge. Or you can make the sensory box more mobile and bring out a cookie sheet for the letters. For your older kiddos, those 4 and up, you can have them write a word that starts with the letter they found!
