OT Activity of the Day:
Mother's Day Craft
Target Age Range: 5 and up
Mother's Day is Sunday May 14th and this week we are celebrating mothers! This craft is perfect for your Kindergarteners and First Graders.
To make this craft you will need a piece of paper, markers, and scissors. First you fold the piece of paper in half. Next take your child's hand and trace the hand making sure the thumb and index finger are on the folded ridge (Your child can also do this part on their own for an added challenge). Then your child can cut out the hand making sure to keep the folded ridge on the index finger and thumb in tact. Finally, open up the hand and write your message.
This activity promotes bilateral coordination, scissor skills, and early writing skills. Happy Mother's Day and enjoy!
