OT Activity of the Day:
Flowers for Mom!
Target Age Range: 2 and up
Moms love flowers. So for Mother's Day why not make her a flower? This craft is perfect for your toddlers, all you need is a paper plate and some dot markers. Dot markers are great because they promote visual motor and fine motor skills with their twist tops. They also provide a wide base of support for your child's early grasp patterns.
To make a paper plate flower, first have your child decorate their plate with the dot markers. Once the plate is all covered, you can glue the plate on a piece of paper and create a stem. You can easily create an outline for the stem and have your child fill it in, or you can allow them to make the stem however they see fit.
