I often as a basic skills task have my students draw flowers, color them and then cut them out. It is a task that I can have most of my kids in therapy do and then modify it for difficulty and change things if I want to work on one specific thing. Sometimes it can surprise you by how hard a simple activity can be.
I drew a flower that I wanted them to copy. It is helpful to the kids for me to draw it for them first so that they see what I expect it to look like and the general shapes that I will be having them draw.
I had him draw his own flower first and then cut it out. I then made it easier by giving him a simpler flower that I had drawn and had him cut it out.
- have them copy it up on a vertical surface such as white board, chalk board, or sliding glass door
- make easier by having them just cut a circle around the flower
- make it easier by having them trace your flower
- make harder by doing a more detailed drawing with more petals
