Simple water transfer activity using a bulb syringe. .

Bit of back story, Miss 2 shattered her elbow in May. The surgeon who reconstructed it was very open about her functionality and growth challenges she may face. .
.
Simple activities like this have helped her gain confidence and rebuild strength in her right hand. .

Can you tell I love pom-poms? 💛

This was lots of fun! The children loved it even more when the pom-poms got stuck on the sticky side of the tape and they had to ‘rescue’ them 😄

Happy #finemotorfriday 🎉 This week has been all about pumpkins with my preschool friends🎃🎃🎃 We read the book 5 little pumpkins and warmed up with carrying pumpkins through a tunnel. We worked on fine motor and hand strengthening skills with putting Pom poms in the tray with tweezers and then practiced cutting strips of paper to make mosaic pumpkins (perfect for use of paper scraps)...many of these items are from the dollar store and make for easy prep activities that the kids love 🎃🎃🎃 #handstrenthening #finemotorfun #literacybasedtherapy #pediatricoccupationaltherapy #scissorskills #preschoolactivity #kidshalloweencrafts

Our students loved this sensory activity today! Picking kernels off a corn cob is so satisfying! #finemotorfun #sensoryplay #fallsensoryplay #kindergarten

Target has some fun visual perception and visual motor activities for $1 right now!! The books have several matching and copying activities with stickers, plus making fun masks. I always swing through to pick up window clings, stickers, and anything else fun I can find for cheap! But these books and packs of hidden picture/I spy pages are great! Can also Use the I spy pages as a fun way to work on counting Or writing numbers.🎃 happy Friday!! #pediatricoccupationaltherapy #pedsot #pediatricot #visualmotor #visualperception #ispy #stickers #finemotorfun #finemotorskills

TGIF folks! Do yourself a favor and make a trip to @dollartree this weekend to grab one of these spiderweb bowls. Flip it over and stick some spider rings (or fly rings!) onto the web. (Isn’t it so annoying that spider rings often have broken rings??? Use the little slice in the circle to affix them to the web!🙌🏻) Hand your child tongs and have them pick the spiders off one by one!

Before meeting my husband I had never tasted lentils and assumed I hated them 😳

Now it's a staple in my diet 😅

But this is the first time I put some in a sensory bin for my little amigo 👍

I added some rocks I got from Bunnings, which I wrote the letters of his name on. And then wrote his name out on paper to match the rocks too. 😊

He knows the first letter, so currently thinks all 'M' words are his name 😅

How and when did your little one learn to recognize their names?

Putting the old snack containers to use again 😊 pushing small Pom Pom balls through the opening to work on digit isolation. Also, easy to fill and throw in a purse or back pack for fun/distraction while waiting at a restaurant, doctor’s office, etc. another fun idea is to fill with random items,have an older child (3-4+yrs) reach all the way in without looking and guess what they’re feeling without looking or find what you ask them to find without looking. Fun ways to pass time without a screen 😊 #pediatricoccupationaltherapy #pediatricot #pedsot #finemotorfun #finemotorskills #sensoryplay #tactileplay #tactile #learningthroughplay #play #otmom #toddlermom #waitingroom

👋🏼 hey there! Found this cute little skeleton friend 💀 in the Target dollar spot last year (super helpful, Cait 🙄) and besides being fun to look at, he is HEAVY- which is a sneaky way for me to encourage the pencil to lay in the web space for some of my kids 😏
This exact one may not be around this year- but keep your eyes open for something similar if you like this idea! 👀

I wanted to share this from the summer for #physicalplaythursday. We have a pretty small garden, and sometimes it can be hard to find ways to vary how we use it for PD, so we have to be creative! On this occasion we hung some hoops up in the garden from the washing line at varying heights and let the children explore the new dynamic in their space independently. They very quickly started trying to throw things through them (bean bags, balls, socks, paper aeroplanes...) swing or run between them and also, to work out how to join them together. We added bubbles to the mix in the environment and encouraged the children to count how many bubbles they could pop- brilliant for maths, but also a fab PD activity as it depends on the children being able to track the bubbles with their eyes, develop quick reactions, hand eye coordination and using their fingers or hands to pop.

A brilliant activity for sequences, counting and hand-eye coordination. For this simple activity I have stolen the kitchen roll holder from our kitchen and found bits and bobs around the house to thread and stack.

It's our first #physicalplaythursday! 😁

Today we have been thinking about gross and fine motor skills. The children were invited to push golf tees into pumpkins (REALLY hard, I started them off and then encouraged them to keep going, we talked about using their whole arm and to push from the shoulder, and give it a twist as they pushed). They then used a hammer to bang their golf tees in even further. In order to do this they had to be able to use one handed tools with accuracy, and develop a good hand/eye coordination. At the end of the activity, they chose to remove the tees from the pumpkin, again needing to use fine motor skills to pinch the tee, gross motor control to pull, and lots of strength!
