OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 5 and up
Today I did this activity with kiddos ranging from Kindergarten to 2nd grade. This activity promoted bilateral coordination, scissor skills and fine motor manipulation. Each kiddo enjoyed this craft and it was a hit with all!
First fold some brown paper (this is a great visual motor task) making sure the edges match. Then have your child use their dominant hand to trace their non dominant hand on the folded paper. Your child in Kindergarten and up should be able to do this. Next cut out the hand making sure that your child is cutting out both pieces at the same time! Then you can glue the hands together and glue them onto your empty toilet paper roll. Once the antlers are set all you need to add is the nose and eyes!
