In this activity, the child will promote motor planning skills, as he plans his route on the spider web. In addition, he will strengthen his balance skills and his core, while walking on the web lines and squatting down to pick up objects
Using the masking tape, create a large spider web shape on the floor or carpet. Place the container in the center of the web.
Place different objects to be picked up inside the spider web. Ping-pong balls and bean bags work well for this purpose.
Ask the child to walk and stay on the web lines while picking up all the objects along the way and putting the objects in the container. As the child picks up the object, encourage him to squat down, reach for the object while staying on the line, pick up the object, and return to a standing position.
For grading, ask the child to throw the objects into the container and use a point system where the child gets a point for scoring and loses a point if he falls off the spider web line.
You can also work on pincer grasp by using small objects, such as plastic bugs, and have the child use tongs or tweezers to pick up the items.
