OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 4 and up
Yes, this is a very primitive lady bug with little thrill. However this is the perfect activity if your child needs more practice with their scissor skills! After being able to cut along a straight line, the next developmental milestone is to be able to cut out a circle. So today we have all the circles. For this craft, all you need is a paper plate, construction paper and scissors.
First I put the paper plate on the red paper and trace the outside for the body. This is perfect practice for bilateral coordination, it challenges your child to stabilize the plate in one hand while tracing around with the other hand. Then I cut out the body and glued it on the plate. Next I took black construction paper and cut out some smaller circles for the spots. Last I took some googly eyes and glued them down, to complete my lady bug!
Happy scissor skills and happy Monday!
