|After seeing this idea at the Time For Play blog I thought it would be a great activity
to share for pediatric occupational therapy.
Purpose: This activity encourages finger isolation,
thumb opposition, proprioceptive input and fun!
Materials: gloves, matching buttons and glue
Preparation: Glue the buttons onto the gloves
matching the fingers on each glove.
|Activity 1: Practice opposition. You can call
out the colors that the child needs to match
with the thumb.
|Activity 2: Provide proprioceptive input
by matching up the buttons and pressing
against the hands
|Activity 3: Tap the gloves on the floor using the buttons to make noise.
