5 Activity Tolerance Games to Play During OT Sessions to Make it FUN! | SeniorsFlourish.com #OT #occupationaltherapyI am always looking to mix up my occupational therapy treatments for standing tolerance activities - especially when working in a nursing facility as we are seeing them typically 5 days a week (or more!).

Occupation based ideas are always my go-to, but I love to use games as a means to:

1) work on OT goals,

2) be purposeful,

3) have FUN,

4) have a good time and laugh

Here is a list of some really great DIY games you can easily incorporate into your OT goals for standing tolerance.

Most can be put up and taken down due to limited clinic space!
