Many of my clients enjoy pushing golf balls into a small opening in a bucket lid. This takes force and provides sensory stimulation. I built onto that activity so that they work with a partner as one person inserts balls into the tube and the other person retrieves it and then pushes it into the hole.
The individuals in the video range from young adult to elderly and non-ambulatory to very active. This activity promotes bilateral hand skills, sequencing and social skills.
