OT Activity of the Day:
Pop the Pig-Apple Style!
Target Age Range: 3 and up
I stole some of my apple pieces from a few other games I have so that way we could feed the pig apples! Pop the Pig continues to be a highly coveted game and children are always pumped to play.
Again, this is great for fine motor development whether it’s building hand strength (jumbo tweezers) or working on precutting skills (handy scoopers) or working on sharing/turn taking. I took away the color dice and instead used a number dice. The number dice told us how many times to help the pig “munch”, we just took turns picking the apple we wanted to feed the pig.
I used this game with movement and I also used this game as more of a sedentary game, this continues to be up to you and your child’s needs.
