OT Activity of the Day:
Hole Punch Play Doh
Target Age Range: 4 and up
This is a wonderful hand strengthening activity for kiddos of all ages. Hand strength is so important. Not only is it a foundational requirement for sustained writing, but hand strength makes every day activities (like buttoning, shoe tying, utensil use, etc...) easier.
To hole punch play doh, all you need is play doh and a hole puncher. The trick is to roll out the play doh so it is super thin (a great way to practice bilateral coordination!). Once the play doh is thin, start punching!
Feel free to use as many colors as your child wants! Enjoy!
