OT Activity of the Day:
Eye Dropper Water Play
Target Age Range: 2 and up
Today's eye dropper activity is geared towards the young toddlers and younger Preschoolers. Water play is always a hit and using eye droppers adds a fine motor element that makes this activity even more beneficial.
All you need is to grab a variety of cups and fill them partially with water. (I've even added a sponge so my clients can explore what happens to the water when placed on a sponge!) Your child can then explore using the eye dropper to move the water around! You can place the cups of water in a large "under the bed" bin to help contain any mess. You can also lay down a beach towel to collect any water that escapes. This is the perfect outside activity but can also be done in the kitchen.
So grab those eye droppers and engage your child in fun fine motor development! Enjoy!
