We have still been trying to get some art done on the weekends. We don’t do as much, now that school is in session. I have been trying to find activities that will help James with his OT, as he no longer gets OT. I was told the school would follow up on it, but I have not pushed it yet.
We made Halloween colored paper chains. James was in charge if cutting the strips of paper. His cutting has improved a lot. Sophia loves to cut and paste. This activity ended up turning into a paper party, with James throwing all the extra stips up in the air.
We have also been popping bubbles in bubble wrap. This activity promotes pincer grasp, eye-hand coordination, and hand dexterity. We learned it from our OT over the summer, and it is a great one to do in the car!
Finally, we painted cardboard boxes. Writing, drawing and painting on a vertical surface increases a child’s shoulder stability and develops good wrist position for developing a mature pencil grip.
