As we look forward to warmer temperatures, we continue to look for fun and creative ways to keep families active, engaged and entertained. Children’s Treatment Network is pleased to partner with Georgian College’s Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy Assistant Program to share a series of videos that include spring activities for toddlers, kids and youth of all abilities. Students were asked to highlight hand skills (fine motor) and sensory skill development, and to consider how each activity can connect to the F-Words for Child Development: function, fitness, friends, fun, family and future.
Check out the videos below that include craft activities to build fine motor skills, including grasping skills and hand strength. These activities also include a sensory component so children can explore using their senses, particularly the sense of touch.
