Recent OT presentation

So this may seem a little overwhelming but essentially I did a recent session at one of my elementary schools where I basically went over the handout I showed you guys a few days ago, while pointing out the various toys. We only had about 30 minutes max and I had SO MUCH to share, so I just scattered it all over so they could try it all out/see what I was talking about as we went through the stuff. I was focusing on mostly cheap and easily acessible stuff, such as this bottom picture – the clothespins are wolves and the cotton balls are sheep. Spread out a bunch of cotton balls, give each kid a clothespin, have them catch sheep. Great for strengthening hands and working on a tripod grasp….for kids of all ages. 😉  I like to glue googly eyes on the cotton balls….

Don’t play this game with vegans. AHAHAHAA
