OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 5 and up
Every time I pull the hole puncher out it's a hit. This time is no exception. What I love about the hole puncher is that it's such a great hand strengthening tool! If you go to any craft store or Amazon, I'm sure you can find hole punchers, even ones that punch more than just holes!
To make our snowflake, first we punched 10 holes into the plate. You can do more or less, it's up to you and the motivation level of your child. Next you can take some string and start lacing your snowflake. I did wrap tape around the start of the yarn to keep the yarn from fraying, while I would recommend this trick, it's not necessary! I also taped down the end of the string to the plate so that the snowflake wouldn't come unlaced as we went along.
This craft promotes hand strength and visual motor skills. All skills necessary for a successful Elementary school career!
