At the Rehab, we recently had a breakfast potluck for our occupational therapists to celebrate OT Month. I decided to dig out my inner crafty side, and attempt to make a banner for the occasion!

– Printer
– Scissors
– Card stock
– Glue stick
– Markers
– Stapler
– Ribbon

STEP 1: Find a template with the desired shape for each letter. In my case, I decided to use a puzzle piece. Giant jigsaw puzzles are popular at work. I printed out this free sample template from K3 Teacher Resources.

STEP 2: To add some color, glue the white puzzle pieces on bright colored card stock, and then cut an outline along the edges.

STEP 3: Use a black marker to handwrite “HAPPY OT MONTH”

STEP 4: Overlap the puzzle pieces, and use a stapler to connect the letters.

STEP 5: Add some ribbon along the top, and then hang up your banner for all to see!!
