OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 3 and up
This is an activity that I'm sure many of you already have at home. Today at Camp Splish-SPLOSH we brought out our magnatiles! There are so many ways that you can work on different goals with this activity. Today we were focusing on collaborative play (sharing) and being flexible if a tile we wanted was not available or being used.
At home you can focus on our previously mentioned goals or work on motor planning and problem solving by coming up with a structure/plan to build first, then build the structure making sure you stick to the plan! You can also work on flexibility and collaborative play by making a rule that no one can move anyone else's tiles, this can be tricky and a great way to work on taking a deep breath and playing cooperatively!
This activity also naturally places emphasis on fine motor and visual motor skills. So have fun and enjoy!
