Using pins and cork board for OT equals awesomeness

The pictures show games made with Sharpie. Kids love pushpins. Obviously use careful supervision and judgment and don’t use them if they are not fully cognitively aware or unsafe. Pushpins are great to increase hand strength and dexterity that can help with writing as it somewhat forces them by design to use the radial precision part of the hand. Even an ugly board appeals as they love the pushpin part. 🙂
