OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 3 and up (or whenever you feel like your child won't eat them)
Today at Camp Splish-SPLOSH we brought out our water beads! This was a fun sensory experience for all the kids and not one child tried to eat them! During this sensory fun we worked on holding scissor tongs (of course during the picture the child went right back to holding the scissors with two hands), scooping and dumping, and playing cooperatively.
This would be a fun summer activity for anyone at home. The water beads need one night to set and then you have hours of entertainment! If the beads will be inside, be careful, they have a bit of a bounce and evade tactic should they escape the bin.
Have fun and enjoy!
