OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 3 and up
In order for your child to be able to have age appropriate prewriting skills, they have to have appropriate hand strength and stability. If a child does not have appropriate hand strength and stability then they tend to display a more non-functional grasp on their writing tool. This puts them at a disadvantage to be able to engage in prewriting skills appropriate for their age.
The games and activities pictured today are all designed to build strength and stability in your child's hand. Pictured items include: play doh, therapy putty, wind up toys, squeeze darts, and tongs. These can be purchased at places like Target and Amazon and would be perfect additions to any household!
