OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 3 and up
If you can't tell, this is my favorite time of year. I love coming up with different fall crafts, and I will continue to do so all season long:)
Today we made an apple tree out of coffee filters, tissue paper and popsicle sticks. First I had the kiddos color the coffee filter, or leaves, whatever color they wanted. Most chose green, however one kiddo when with a rainbow pattern! Coloring is a great way to naturally work on fine motor endurance.
After the coffee filter was colored, we started in on the apples. I had yellow, green, and red tissue paper. Each child then had the chance to tear off small pieces of tissue paper and smush them into small balls (rip and then smush). This not only worked on the children following a multi step direction, they were also working on their fine motor manipulation. After we made all the apples we glued them onto the leaves and then glued on the popsicle stick to the back!
