Use finger aerobics in the classroom, home or therapy clinic to work on fine motor skills needed for functional tasks. Hand aerobics are a great fine motor exercise workout before handwriting tasks for the whole class! Perfect for the school based OT.
This activity would be good for the physical development of preschoolers because they will learn motor skills on how to put the pipe cleaners threw the little holes on the strainers. I feel like this is an age appropriate activity because it seems like something they could do without being bored easily.
