What can be more fun than a giant dot-to-dot picture?
We used our fridge together with whiteboard/dry erase markers for this fun activity!
My daughter’s occupational therapist suggested that she does more vertical, crossing midline activities to develop her shoulder girdle muscles. I intentionally made this picture this big and numbered it so that she has to cross her midline.
So how did we do it?
Not only is this activity great for midline crossing and shoulder girdle muscle development, it also works on number recognition, ordering, hand eye coordination and fine motor skills.
And the fun part: the surprise of what picture it is!
If you don’t want to work on the fridge, you could use a proper white board, chalk board(a vertical one) or even a big paper stuck to the wall. Or draw against a window or glass shower door!
Change the picture to themed ones, depending on the season or theme your child is learning about! Add more numbers for older kids.
If you have difficulty “seeing” the picture without drawing it, draw it first, make the dots on strategic places, and wipe off your drawing, leaving dots only.
The possibilities are endless!
Have fun with giant dot-to-dot drawing!
