OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 3 and up
Here's a fun way to add eye droppers into play! Grab a glass cup or jar (I used a vase) and fill it with water. Next take some shaving cream (I buy the cheapest stuff at Target) and squirt the shaving cream on top of the water. And there you have yourself a rain cloud! Now comes the fun part. Take some food coloring, you can use any color, and mix it in with water. For the final step, grab an eye dropper, fill it with the food coloring and drop the food coloring on top of the rain cloud. After a few drops and some wait time (1-2 minutes) you'll start to see the food coloring below the cloud and in the water!
Eye droppers are great to help facilitate fine motor manipulation and control. This activity is perfect for your Preschoolers and Kindergartners. Enjoy!
