This month we have fun bug-themed activities the whole
family can take part in.
The best part is you can support your child’s learning and therapy goals while
also having fun using our suggested games and activities!
Gross Motor Activity
Draw several flowers and a beehive on the sidewalk with chalk. In this game,
pretend you’re a bee trying to get all the flowers. Jump from flower to flower
and pretend to collect all the honey then run back to the beehive.
Fine Motor Activity
On a table, arrange a few pieces of painter’s tape in lines to create a
spiderweb, with the sticky side facing up. Using pompoms as bugs, slide or flick
them to get past the spiderweb without getting stuck. For every bug that gets
past the web, you get a point!
