Functional task for adult occupational therapy patients.
Our Clinic Creations: Categorization for Adult TBI or Dementia Clients Here is an easy functional task that targets categorization recently used with a TBI client. Bring in bags of empty items from a grocery store and have client help put away the groceries based on whether they go in the kitchen (more specifically pantry or refrigerator) or the bathroom cabinet.

- Balancing Marbles = good activity to promotor fine motor skills development - pinch/eyehand coordination/controlled release - from 30 Kids Activities & Materials for Promoting Fine Motor Skills but can definitely see using this for any age!

Great fine motor activity when they have to use the pinching motion to hold on to the marble and work slowly and deliberately to balance it. This seems like an older toddler/ preschool activity and needs close monitoring plus secure storage. Marbles are a choking hazard and kids need to be taught the rules. I am going to try this with my almost three year old son but the kids in a preschool class are too young to try it.
