Homemade Fidget Toy - this is a great idea much better than trying to shove play-doh inside a balloon only to break open shortly after. Socks are much sturdier and softer. No latex allergies to worry about either. Great idea!!!!
CALMING CADDY! Items to include: stress ball, Play Doh, squishy balls...to squeeze out anger. Crayons and spiral tablet...to write down feelings or draw. A calming jar...to relax. A small stuffed toy...for comfort. Visual cue cards...for deep breathing technique, keep hands and feet to self, count to 10, talk to an adult.
BY FAR the best management tool for blurting out I have EVER used!!! It worked immediately! Repinned by SOS Inc. Resources. Follow all our boards at http://Pinterest.com/sostherapy for therapy resources.
Make your own sensory fidget toy. Have your kids blow up a balloon a few times to stretch it out (while also working on oral motor strengthening, breath control and core activation!). Using a funnel, fill up the balloon with corn starch and tie a knot in it. Now they have a toy to add to their sensory box!
Stamping is a great activity for proprioceptive training -- and using play-doh instead of ink ensures that there's no mess! Idea from Having Fun At Home re-pinned by SPD Blogger Network. For mroe sensory-related pins, see http://pinterest.com/spdbn
