Sensory Hacks to Calm an Angry Child

Top 10 Angry Child Sensory Hacks | These are perfect for my calming corner and my sensory tools basket!

The Way I Feel... Activity- Great for teaching feelings in the moment of a behavior...stop and take a minute to draw your feeling, then reflect back on it.

Emotions game- the kids loved these more than I thought they would! We did a whole lesson where we mimiced the emotion and where we talked about what caused the emotion. Afterwards I put them out for free choice with mirrors and a dry erase board and the students played with them for a LONG time! success!

Floating Feelings: Feeling faces drawn on ping pong balls with a Sharpie. Float in a bowl of water. Child scoops one out with a slotted spoon or tongs and identifies the feeling and a time they experienced that feeling.

RELAX Jar - Instead of counting to 10 to calm down, why not make a RELAX jar? Turn the jar until you find all of the letters to spell RELAX. Hopefully the student will get their mind off the situation long enough to calm down!
