OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 4 and up
This is a great activity for our Preschoolers. It promotes fine motor manipulation, scissor skills and bilateral coordination. All skills that are necessary for our future Kindergartners!
Yes, I'm having the child pictured use a container full of Mr. Potato Head pieces as a table. Sometimes you have to be creative;). All that aside, this craft works best with tissue paper, it's easier to manipulate into a small ball than regular paper. Once you have some tissue paper, you most likely have everything else you need!
First, I had the child trace their non-dominant hand with their dominant hand (bilateral coordination). I then traced over their pencil line with a marker so that it was easier for them to cut on. Once they cut the mitten out we picked out what color tissue paper we wanted and then ripped, squished, dipped into glue, and placed on the mitten:).
