  • Fun Children’s Activity for Motor Skills

    A friend of mine is an occupational therapist and has been sharing activities on her Facebook profile to do with your little ones while we’re all homebound. I especially loved this activity I’m about to share and asked her permission to do so!

    What you’ll need: white rice, distilled white vinegar, and some food coloring

    For every cup of rice, add 1/2 tsp of white vinegar and a few drops of food coloring in a bag and then shake. Then… let your child PLAY!

    There are so many great motor skills at work here. Scooping, opening/closing the ziplock bag, and using your hands to shake/mix up the rice.

    If your child is unable to receive therapy during this time, this could be a great alternative! Are there any innovative activities you’ve come up with that your child loves?
