OT Activity of the Day:
Geoboards and binder clips
Target Age Range: 3 and up
Here are two great ways to improve your child's hand strength. The best part is that most of these can be found around the house!
Geoboard- all you need is a muffin tin and rubber bands. Your child can then spend time stretching out the rubber bands to create a design over and over again:).
Binder clips- use construction paper to create animals (a great way to practice scissor skills) and use the binder clips as the legs or arms.
Both ways will improve your child's hand strength, a foundational skill for so much in life. Enjoy!
