Giving Fall a hand…..

We did a fun easy craft in our OT/Speech group this week. It was all about working on fine motor skills, following directions and vocabulary. I can see doing this for articulation and writing target words on the branches, pumpkins or paper leaves.

Here is what we used:

  1. construction paper – we used white but the choice is endless
  2. crayons – you could use colored pencils or markers
  3. confetti leaves and silk leaves – this is what we had picked up from the dollar store but any leaves would work- if you use paper leaves you could add even more words
  4. your hand – to trace around (now do you get the blog post title?!)
First trace your hand and arm to create branches and trunk. We wrote the word FALL on the trunk and thought of fall words to write on the branches.

We drew pumpkins along the bottom. Tall ones, round ones, small ones, fat ones, etc.

We glued on leaves. Some of the tree, under, next to, etc.

Ta da! The final project.

Now it’s your turn to twist this into your own therapy activity!
