OT Activity of the Day:
Halloween Sensory Box
Target Age Range: 3 and up
This is a personal favorite. I anxiously wait all year long to be able to pull out this sensory box. For easy clean up I typically lay out a sheet to put the sensory on while playing. This ensures easy clean up should the beans and other goodies fall out of the box. The sheet captures the items and then you can gather the sheet and dump the items back in at the end. A solid tip for any sensory box!
I've added a variety of tongs to work on fine motor strength, endurance, fine motor manipulation, and scissor manipulation.
