OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 2 and up
It's turkey time! This is an oldie but a goodie. This craft is perfect for kiddos of all ages and places emphasis on various fine motor skills and bilateral coordination. For the kiddos who are in Pre-K and up they should be able to use their dominant hand to trace their non-dominant hand. For the kiddos who are younger than that, they can have their hand traced or use a already made template from your hand.
For the older kiddos, they can then use glue and glue some feathers on and for the younger kiddos they can simply just color. It's entirely up to you and what's available in your house. When you're using glue remember to use the bottle versus the stick, the bottle provides an added hand strengthening component.
You can have the turkey be the end of the craft or you can cut the turkey out and glue it on other paper and draw a few details, it's up to you and the level/interest of your child!
