When clients ‘ink’ it, it helps them ‘think’ it. So here is a therapy activity that can support social/emotional goals as well as fine motor cognitive skills.
SUPPLIES: 1 chad, 2 paper plates, markers, scissors, and glue(optional).
DIRECTIONS: 1. Cut out the center of one paper plate. (This will be attached to the back of your main plate by a chad.)
2. Draw lines dividing the center (that you just cut) plate piece and write or place coping skills in the pie-shaped sections. (Keep all the sections the same size)
3. Hold your uncut paper plate on top of the center plate piece and trace out 1 pie section. (This is what you cut so that you will be able to see the center plate piece that has the strategies on it.
4. Place a brass chad thru the 2 paper plates at the center.
5. Decorate as desired.
