Don’t miss our Virtual Therapy Pack! This resource is full of more than 60 fun, engaging, colorful interactive activities for your teletherapy practice!
Outer Space Telehealth Therapy Session
Use these gross motor and fine motor activities to create the perfect virtual occupational or physical therapy session – or use the activities for in-person sessions! The beauty of this plan is that it can be used in a variety of settings.
-Tape or stickers
1 – Outer Space Interactive Movement Game
Our interactive movement games are perfect for virtual sessions because they really get kids interested and engaged with the theme through movement!
During the outer space game, kids will complete a variety of space missions in order to receive their “Junior Astronaut Medal”!
2 – Make Your Own Constellations
Talk to kids about what constellations are and screen share to show them pictures of them from around the web. Explain that a constellation is a group of stars in the sky that look like a certain pattern or a picture.
Have kids create their own constellations by placing their stickers or pieces of tape on their paper any way they’d like. Then, have them connect the points to create a picture or pattern using markers or crayons.
-Draw dots on the page as “targets” to indicate where the child should place the stickers. You can create certain shapes or prewriting lines and have kids place the stickers on the dots before connecting them to create the shapes/lines.
-Use stickers or pieces of tape as starting points of letters for kids who are working on writing their names or letter formation
3 – I Spy
Next, have kids take the paper where they made their constellations and roll it up into a tube shape. Place tape on the seam to secure the tube, creating a telescope!
Play I Spy with the child spying through their telescope! Have them search the room or house for items of a certain color, shape, or beginning letter sound! Or try this I Spy With a Twist activity using their telescope!
And there you have it! Another awesome telehealth therapy session under your belt! Have you used this treatment plan? Leave us a comment below and let us know how it went!
