Work Tasks from Around the House

Check out these functional tasks that are so simple and cheap to make, using old containers around the house (or classroom)!

TASK ONE: A Squeeze Jelly Fine Motor Sort


Could be used as a sorting and fine motor task or a simple fine motor task.  It is just scrap pieces of felt that need to be fed through the lid using a pincer grasp.  

TASK TWO: A Sandwich Assembly Task


Perfect for pretend play in a dramatic play center for younger students or for practical practice of making sandwiches in a life skills class.  I used scrap pieces of felt and old sandwich containers but you could use scrap fun foam too.  




TASK THREE: A Play Dough Can Sort



Great for students, who are tactile defensive to start experience play dough in a nonthreatening way first with just the play dough container and pom-poms.  Then with the play dough container and little balls of play dough to put in, then eventually with any luck actually playing with play dough.

What tasks have you come up with this summer?  Please share below I would love to hear about more tasks I can make out of random things around the house before the school year starts!

Best Wishes, Lindy
