Having fun with handwriting!

 

Check out this DIY slant board that was made using a binder, paper clips, and Velcro strips! This is a nice way to make handwriting practice more fun. A child can practice forming shapes or writing letters, numbers, and words using this DIY gel bag, which is just a Ziploc freezer bag filled with hair gel, food coloring and glitter. (Be sure to let the child pick the color!) Secure the bag closed with a strip of Duct tape and Velcro the sensory bag onto the slant board. The child can start by using their finger to write and then progress to a writing utensil. 

This project was completed by a Master of Occupational Therapy student at The University of Tennessee Health Science Center and posted with permission.
