OT Activity of the Day:
Pasta sensory bin
Target Age Range: 2 and up
This is a great way to beat a rainy day! We dumped different dry pastas into a large container and the kids at Camp Splish Splosh all had a blast. The best part about this sensory bin is one sweep of the broom and it was all clean! Though if you're at home over the carpet, a large sheet underneath works well too.
To foster fine motor development we put pipe cleaners in for the kids to use to string the pasta. We also put regular tongs and scissor tongs to help with fine motor manipulation and scissor skill development. We also had aliens hidden around to practice identifying items in a busy background!
Try a pasta sensory bin at your home this week and enjoy!
