OT Activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 4 and up
I'm back! It been a while since an activity post and as today was the first day of Camp Splish-SPLOSH (a speech therapy/occupational therapy run camp), I thought it would be the perfect time to start this blog back up!
Today we made name rockets. This was a fun craft that focused on several different developmental aspects. First, the child can practice writing their name, then they have to fit all their squares on the paper (this was a bit tricky but great motor planning/problem solving practice), they have to glue the squares down and add rocket "wings" and a rocket top. This was a multistep task and perfect for kiddos who need extra practice with sequencing multistep tasks.
I provided all the squares, however depending on your child's ability, they can cut out their own squares. P.S. during camp we are using Flip Crayons to help promote a natural tripod grasp:).
