OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 2 and up
This is a great activity that can target visual motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and hand strength. I used this activity for children as young as 2 years and as old as 6 years old. So it's easily scaled up and down.
For the younger kiddos you can build one structure and provide assistance as needed. The real fun, and work, will be when they use the pig popper. The pig popper must be squeezed hard to push the ball from his mouth, so this is the perfect activity for building hand strength!
For the older kiddos you can work to build two structures, one that you build and then one that they copy (visual motor skills). Then they can work the pig popper to take out the structures one at a time!
