Cut up pipe-cleaners and place them in a bottle. Use a magnet to manipulate them. Kids will stay busy for hours.

This Calming Find It Game is perfect for changing a child's focus from being upset to concentrating on finding fun objects in a find it game. I use this fo

Rock Dominoes. Genius.

I also read you could cut a hole in the Bottem of a plastic cup too! Clever!

Sensory bottles! They used Voss water bottles. Not sure where to find them but any water bottle will work. use mineral oil for a way to slow down the materials in the bottle. I usually do 2/3 water to 1/3 oil. Can also do just rice and small objects for I-Spy bottles.
