Another Use for Straws!

It may be Christmas/Winter break, but therapy doesn't take a vacation.
Crafty Moms need to be sneaky in finding ways to entice kids to work.
Let's face it, we're all still recovering from the "holiday hangover".
But take some scissors and add some straws and you have a fun activity!
With just the right amount of resistance (as compared to cutting a piece of construction paper), the straws provide a great avenue for increasing hand strength.
Nothing like pieces of straws flicking here and there while being snipped!
And yes, my daughter loved the projectile objects!
Now, to find a broom to sweep up this OT mess!

  1. Anything for OT! I do draw the line at glitter, though... I haven't broken out glitter in our house - ever. I can handle straws, though!
