Awesome Occupational Therapy Christmas Activities for Kids

I don't know about you, but I'm getting into the Christmas spirit. Whether you are trying to think up some fun Christmas themed occupational therapy activities to add to the mix this month, or are looking for Christmas activities that kids and the whole family will love, it's a fun time of year for adding creative Christmas ideas! 

That's why I wanted to put together some therapist-approved Christmas activities for kids. These are ideas that add a motor component to learning and play. Stay tuned, because this week is all about Christmas activities for kids here on The OT Toolbox! 

I'll link to all of the posts this week here but be sure to stop back each day to see the activities and ideas that you can use in therapy treatment sessions, in the classroom, and in the home. 

This would be a great way to get ideas for home programs or holiday break activities, too! 

All of the activities and ideas you'll find here are perfect for the occupational therapist looking for Christmas themed fine motor activities, sensory challenges, visual motor activities, gross motor ideas, brain breaks, and more!


These Christmas activities for kids are perfect for using in occupational therapy activities, in home programs, in the OT clinic, or in the classroom. All of the occupational therapy Christmas activities are designed to promote motor development including fine motor, gross motor, visual motor, and sensory, all with a Christmas theme!
