This activity addresses finger isolation, direction following, and color recognition by playing a mini twister game.
Markers, Paper, Scissors
Body Awareness, Cutting, Finger Isolation, Motor Planning, and Visual Motor
Use scissors, markers and paper to create a miniature "twister" board (3-4 rows of 3 colored dots).
Instruct the child on which finger to put on which colors (ex: pointer finger on blue dot, pinkie finger on green dot).
Having child make their own board to take home can address cutting, coloring and visual motor skills.
You can modify the activity for grading to incorporate many other skills you are working on (ex: have child draw different shapes instead of just colored circles, or use letters instead of circles)
