Visit: http://www.ot-mom-learning-activities.com/index.html - I will be trying some of OT Mom's ideas for sure!
My husband and I have been doing exercises with our daughter to increase her hand strength, and we just keep working at it. She actually has a lot of fun with it.
Today I sliced a bunch of tangerines for her to squeeze one-by-one and make fresh orange juice. She came to me with a tangerine that she dug a hole into and said, "Mom, I'm gonna make some juice." So we just went with it. She didn't even know she was getting a workout!
To start, we always print her photo and she cuts them out. For decoration, I bought her some tiny foam Valentine stickers (only $1.00 at Dollar Store) to use. We also used lace doilies (also from Dollar Store) and pastel colored paper cut into hearts. Just a little glue and Ta-Da! Happiness! So in essence she got a workout making these cards, and so did Auntie Sheila.
Try this for Valentine's Day or any day will do!
Keep on working at it!
