OT activity of the Day:
Target Age Range: 5 and up
It’s Fall and that means it’s time for apples and pumpkins everything! This week we’re bringing back an oldie but a goodie. It’s our yarn apple! This is a great activity for your Kindergartners, First Graders and Second Graders. This craft promotes fine motor strength, visual motor skills, fine motor manipulation and cutting.
First you take your hole puncher and punch holes all around your paper plate (hand strength). Then take your yarn (highly suggest taping the threading end so that the yarn doesn’t fray) and start lacing (visual motor and fine motor manipulation skills)! Lacing is a skill that is developed by the age of 4 so this should be good practice for your younger and older kiddos. For your older kiddos you can always add in some writing afterwards!
Happy Fall and enjoy!
