OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 3 and up
Today at camp we made binoculars for our nature walk that we'll be doing later this week. This was a great activity that hit on all sorts of different skill sets. We were able to work on writing (writing names or simple sentence on the binocular cover), hand strength (hole puncher), and visual motor skills with stringing the yarn.
All you need to make your own binoculars is construction paper, empty toilet paper rolls, yarn, hole puncher, and markers/crayons. I wrapped the toilet paper rolls with the construction paper, however if your child has the skill level, definitely let them do it! Later this week we'll take the binoculars outside to help us find all sorts of nature's treasures!
