OT Activity of the Day:
Acorns and Apples
Target Age Range: 5 and up
Today we were playing a game with acorns and apples. First we established that for the odd numbers we would get an apple and for the even numbers we would get an acorn. Then we predicted which we would get more of by the end of the game (8 rolls). For some kiddos I had them use a scooter board to scoot back and forth on the mat while for others I had them use a balance beam or balance steps. Each kid really got into the predictions and for most games, the odd numbers won!
We worked on our bilateral coordination, number recognition, balance, and writing our numbers all while having some Fall fun!
