OT Activity of the Day:
Sensory Relay Race!
Target Age Range: 2 and up
This was a super fun group activity we did today at Camp Splish Splosh:). We split the camp into two groups and had two trays of moon sand with items hidden in each tray. Each child took a turn taking a bucket down to the tray and locating their designated item. Once the item was found the bucket was brought to the next friend.
This could easily be done with you and your child at home. You could hide some items in your sensory bin (bin options: pasta, rice/beans, moon sand/regular sand/cotton balls/poms/ice) and have your child find them as you call them out. You can add some movement in the game by you being on one side of the room and the sensory bin on the other. A great way to work on movement for regulation, tactile input for regulation, and listening to directions.
