OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 3 and up
Today's activity is the perfect gross motor movement activity for Valentine's Day. You can play this game one of several ways:
1. Typical musical chairs. Play music and have the kiddos stop when the music stops.
2. Roll some dice. Have the children take turns rolling the dice to see how many hearts they have to travel.
3. Spread the hearts out so they're not in a circle and challenge the kiddos to perform different gross motor movements as they move to a specified color.
All these options are great ways to provide movement to your sensory seeking child, improve your child's gross motor capabilities, and bilateral coordination.
Happy almost Valentine's Day, enjoy!
