OT Activity of the Day:
Coffee Filter Snowman
Target Age Range: 5 and up
This is a great fine motor activity that places emphasis on visual motor skills, fine motor manipulation and scissor skills.
The key to this craft is to make sure that the edges line up (visual motor skills) each time you fold the coffee filter in half. I had each kiddo fold the filter in half 3 separate times so that it looked like a pizza slice as we started cutting. The trick is to make sure that the folded edges are really creased, this will make cutting much easier. Still a great activity that promotes fine motor development in our Elementary school kiddos.
After the coffee filter is cut to your child's liking then you can glue it on paper and start to add the details! Enjoy!
