Spring into the season with fun activities that promotes both hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills for occupational therapy patients to try! You can purchase all the required materials for both activities for under $10 at Walmart or the Dollar Store.
This fine motor and color matching flower activity by The Kindergarten Connection is easy for all ages K-12. Start by taking sheets of felt and cutting out flower shapes. Cut slits into the center of the flowers. Take the colored buttons and choose colors to match your chosen shades of felt. Lace one green through the center of the each button. Ask your student to take each buttoned stem and match it to the same color flower. Then have them attach the two by pulling the stems through.
