I want to post a few pics of our eggs, the ones we dyed for the deviled eggs came out really neat. I suggest it to everyone and plan on doing them like this from now on. I'm also gonna share some pics of a game I made up yesterday for Lj and his cousin....
EGG COLORING~ NOTE: a whisk works great to hold the eggs for dyeing, especially for clumsy little hands :)
In these mugs are the eggs for the swirled devil eggs, I simply cracked the eggs, and let them soak in egg dye (without vinegar) for a few hours.
This is how they looked when they were ready to be peeled.
Ready to be deviled. They turned out so cool!
Can't wait to eat these :)
Now, the following pics are of our new game. Its a variation of the game Recycled Jug Catcher from OT Plan. It works on eye-hand coordination skills in addition to developing fine motor skills.
All we did was use eggs instead of balls of paper. LJ loved it, as did his cousin and a few of the neighborhood kiddos.
This was a great game, as they were having fun while working on the following skills:
Bilateral Hand Use, Cutting, Eye-Hand Coordination, Hand Arches/Separation, Motor Planning, Pincer Grasp, Visual Perception
The OT Plan sight is awesome, and since my son isn't currently working with an OT I use it alot to help him myself at home.
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday. From my family to yours.....
