Halloween Directed Drawing Occupational Therapy for In-Person or Teletherapy

In this FREE resource, there are 4 Halloween themed directed draws:

1- Draw a Spider

2- Draw Candy

3- Draw a Cauldron

4- Draw a Jack-o'-Lantern

Each of these drawings are based on starting with a single large circle. I recommend that in doing these drawings, you incorporate working on bilateral integration . . . How can you do that? Look around for a circle shape. At school you can use any circular shape such as a pencil holder/canister. If you are doing teletherapy, have the child use a can. Now, place the circular shape on the paper and trace it to make the large circle shape. This is tricky for kids, but it's a wonderful activity that kids usually enjoy - plus it requires a lot of body awareness and motor planning.

Directed drawing is a scaffolded activity. If a child struggles with drawing, then mastering even a simple picture can feel like a success. Also, directed drawing addresses a child's fine motor skills. You can have a child use a crayon piece - about an inch long - to promote a functional pencil grasp.

You can also make these fun Halloween directed draws in whipped cream, hot chocolate, sand, or shaving cream. This presents a tactile sensory element to the activity which can also be very motivating for kids!
