OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 2 and up
Today at Camp Splish-SPLOSH we rescued aliens from slime! The slime was actually green jello and a great sensory activity for the kiddos at camp. They enjoyed digging into the jello and pulling out the aliens and then playing in the "slime". The aliens were also finger puppets, great for finger isolation!
Sensory activities are great as they provide calming and regulating input. While we used slime today, in the past few days we've also used regular sand, "moon" sand (kinetic), and a bean pool at Camp Splish-SPLOSH. In addition to our other outside activities, we always have a sensory option to allow children who need a break to take one and calm down before returning to all the fun!
I hope you're having a great summer and I hope you enjoy some of these sensory options!
