OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 5 and up
This is such a fun activity and can be done with items you already have around the house! I even had a small obstacle course in between each item added to help provide movement and sensory support!
This activity is great for your kiddos who are 5 and up. It places emphasis on your child's executive functioning skills (thought organization, motor planning, thought flexibility, and thought creation) and their ability to build a snowman out of ordinary household items. For some kiddos we used a dry erase board or piece of paper to draw out what a snowman would look like first so we could begin to brainstorm what items we wanted to use. For some kiddos they needed the body already put together to start with thought creation. Some kiddos were independent in all aspects. An activity that can be catered to meet any child's needs!
All in all, it was a great sensory/movement activity that helped improve executive functioning skills! Enjoy!
