When done in prone, this activity provides core strengthening, upper body strengthening, and proprioceptive input.
Help the child cut 4 equal pieces of masking tape. Each piece should be about 3 feet long.
Use the masking tape pieces to make a large tic tac toe board on the floor.
Use the construction paper to cut shapes (each player should have his own shape). You will need 5 pieces of each shape. Let the child help you with a cutting of the shapes.
If working on writing skills, each player can write his name on his shapes.
Instruct the child to lay prone next to the tic tac toe board.
Using the pieces you cut, play the tic tac toe game by placing the pieces while keeping your body prone and reaching with your arms out to place the pieces on the board (i.e. crossing midline).
For grading: instead of writing your name on each shape, you can write your initials or any other word as appropriate.
