In addition to our award winning speech therapy sessions, TinyEYE offers occupational therapy services as well. Our commitment to you is our commitment to your students. Every action we take is directed toward improving student outcomes and creating efficient, scalable services that make a difference in the lives of each and every one of our therapy students.
There are many benefits to online occupational therapy. Teletherapy opens doors by improving access to services to those who wouldn’t otherwise get occupational therapy. Sessions are convenient and put emphasis on patient education and the student’s needs. We only contract the very best therapists to work with TinyEYE students. Our online occupational therapists are carefully selected based on character, skill and spark.
Now, in celebration of the winter season, we thought it’d be the perfect time to show your creative side off with some fun winter OT activities. All of the activities work on kids fine motor skills and get’s their creative juices flowing.
1) Build a Graham Cracker Gingerbread House
Helps with fine motor, visual perceptual and motor planning skills. Tastes yummy too! The real challenge is not eating all the candy before it gets glued to the house with icing.
2) Ice Painting
Make ice “paintbrushes” to paint a picture. Freeze food coloring and water with a small toothpick in an ice cube tray. When frozen, use the toothpick to guide your ice cube on paper for some beautiful artwork. Holding the toothpick and “painting” will be quite the occupational therapy experience for your little one.
3) Build a Snowman
Does it get any better than this? Get outside and build a good old fashioned snowman. Make sure have your child use their fingers to add eyes, a nose and a happy smile. Don’t forget the carrot!
4) Sledding Outdoors
Ready, Set, Slide!! Get some vestibular input with natural winter fun. Who knew occupational therapy could be such a thrill? Have some prizes for the first to cross the finish line.
5) Tactile Snow Bin
Use real snow as the “main ingredient” in a bin full of winter themed treasures hidden within. Make sure to have towels handy to warm those cold hands.
6) Snow Spraying
Use a spray bottle filled with water and food coloring. Keep spraying to change the snow’s color. This is wonderful for developing hand strength and creativity!
We are a Canadian company, so you know we are the winter activity specialists! Bring on the snow and the FUN!
