[Source: Your Therapy Source]
Here is a very simple make and take that include fine motor skills, gross motor skills and eye hand coordination skills.
You will need a paper plate, paint stirrer or large craft stick, markers and a balloon for each child.
Ask the children to think of physical activities that they can complete on their own at home ie swinging, jump rope, hopscotch, dance, shoot hoops, etc. Go around the table and ask each child for their ideas. With each suggestion, the children write down the idea on his/her own plate. When done attach the paint stirrer to the back
