OT Activity of the Day:
Play Doh Aliens
Target Age Range: 3 and up
Play doh is a great hand strengthening activity as well as a calming sensory activity. At Camp Splish Splosh today we made play doh aliens! We focused on rolling the play doh into a ball, smashing it with our hands, and putting all sorts of googly eyes and pipe cleaners (antennas) all over our "aliens"!
This placed emphasis on bilateral coordination, finger isolation, fine motor manipulation, and building hand strength. The activity was a hit for all and the kiddos didn't even know they were getting such benefits!
