Magnetic Mr. Potato Head

When working on visual perceptual skills, placing body parts on Mr. Potato head can be a great tool. The real Mr. Potato Head is great for working on fine motor and visual perception, but sometimes you want a smaller and simpler activity.

Meet flat potato head. I made some potato head parts on the computer and printed them out on magnet paper. Copying a facial pattern can be more natural than copying shapes patterns. I have some other magnetic shape patterns that I made last year.

Here is the potato head parts pdf to print out if you would like to play with the flat potato head too.  You could also just print out the parts and have students cut them out and glue them together to make a potato head.

  1. This is great. Not only will my little ones get the OT practice but they’ll also get the langugae skills practice they need. They will love playing with this as an independent activity too. I sure hope you will continue to add more to this (maybe Mrs. Potato Head and all the costumes you can get for them). Thanks soooo much.
