Finding Rocks in Putty
My mom had this great therapy putty left over from her teaching days, and she let O and I borrow it. O had a great time finding the rocks in the putty. The putty is similar to silly putty, but its much firmer and requires a good bit of effort to find and pull the rocks out of the putty. I was impressed with how focused and determined O was during this activity :) This activity is great for increasing hand and finger muscle strength and fine motor skills, and it's great for teaching persistence and determination!
