OT Activity of the Day:
Letters and Eye Droppers!
Target Age Range: 3 and up
Eye droppers are great ways to promote early developmental grasp patterns and fine motor manipulation. In older kids it can be used to promote fine motor control. All in all, eye droppers are a great fine motor tool to have in the house.
In today's activity we are using those eye droppers on coffee filters. (It is recommended to use markers versus crayons so that the colors bleed and blend.) On all three of these coffee filters there are different drawings. On one I simply made a picture/pattern, an activity that is perfect for those 3-4 year olds. On another, I wrote a letter, "M", which is a task that is perfect for those late 3 year olds and 4 year olds. On the last one I wrote a phrase (and then proceeded to use too much water so it's hard to see), "Happy Monday", a task that is perfect for those 5 and 6 year olds.
Happy Monday and enjoy!
