Spray Shapes and Patterns



Here is an old favorite therapeutic activity - spray shapes and patterns.  Cut up some fun foam into different shapes or use any foam shapes.  Using a spray bottle, squirt some water on a white board or mirror.  The fun foam will stick to the surface.

You could trace the shapes on a dry area of the board.  Once the shapes are damp the child can match them up to the outlines.  

This activity encourages:
  • hand strengthening
  • wrist extension
  • visual perceptual skills
  • math concepts
