If you are looking for a fun activity that addresses poor motor planning skills, here is just what you are looking for!
-Carpet mark-it spots - Available on Amazon or vinyl spot markers - in different colors (These can also be made out of construction paper and secured to the floor with tape.)
- Strips of paper with circles printed on the in varying order- laminate these
-"Key" with instructions for different motor tasks next to each colored circle- also laminated
How to Play:
Position the carpet mark-it spots in a circle and instruct the child to stand in the middle. The child should draw a card and perform the tasks in the order of the colored dots. For example, if the card had a purple circle then a red circle, the child would look at the cheat sheet, go to that particular colored circle on the floor, and then perform the each task.
For a neat twist, pay
close attention to the child and mirror what he or she does. Then switch it up and have the child copy you!
