OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 5 and up
I found this amazing kit today while I was in Target ONLY to get paper towels 😂. It comes with modeling clay, cookie cutters, sequins, googly eyes, and other manipulatives that can be added as detail to any creation.
This is going to be great not only for hand strength and manipulation, but for imagination and ideation. I have a lot of kiddos who have trouble "writing", however, it turns out, the problem isn't always in their hand, it's that they have a hard time with ideation of what to write. This clay is an opportunity for kiddos to use their imaginations and create whole play schemes. Hey, we may even write down a story they create using clay!
