For this activity, you can use many different types of stencils to trace. (Cookie cutters)
Provide the child with different stencils and have him/her trace inside or outside the stencil.
The child can also finger-paint inside these stencils.
If the child has difficulties with bilateral hand use, you may want to tape the stencil to the surface the child works on.
Cut the Line
This activity will help teach the child to control the direction of the scissors (cutting lines) and bilateral hand use.
Use the ruler to draw 4 inch thick lines across an index card.
At the edge of each line put a sticker and ask the child to cut along the line you drew all the way up to the sticker.
When the child is able to cut along an index card easily, repeat the activity using a paper.
