OT Activity of the Week: Spray Shapes and Patterns
[Source: Your Therapy Source]
Here is an old favorite therapeutic activity – spray shapes and patterns. Cut up some fun foam into different shapes or use any foam shapes. Using a spray bottle, squirt some water on a white board or mirror. The fun foam will stick to the surface.
You could trace the shapes on a dry area of the board. Once the shapes are damp the child can match them up to the outlines.
This activity encourages:
- hand strengthening
- wrist extension
- visual perceptual skills
- math concepts
