Wiffle Ball Spider Fine-Motor Activity
I punched holes all over the bottle to insert the removed tie wraps and cut an opening on the bottom of the bottle to make removing them easy. My client shown in the video chose to insert the tie wraps into the top of the bottle. You may choose to keep the cover on if you want the greater challenge of inserting them through holes. Make smaller holes for greater challenge!
1) attach more balls to make the activity last longer
2) Children or clients may choose to make the "spider legs" all the same color.
3) Insert a motorized toothbrush inside the bottle to make the spider shake.
4) Use a larger bottle or attach the wiffle balls to a wall so that materials are at eye level. This will promote visual attention and upright posture.
