sensory Jun 03, 2020

It is so hard to believe that the summer months are here! Let’s get ready by making sure there are plenty of engaging sensory activities that children, teens, and adults alike will want to do again and again.

Here are some great ideas organised by sensory skill. These great products are linked with my Amazon affiliate account.

Vestibular

A fun balance board is a great tool for strengthening muscles and improving equilibrium and balance. These are used by many ages become a fun routine!

Proprioception

Get busy hands happy and help strengthen arm muscles with this pack of stress balls in various textures. Not only does this satisfy the need to touch fun textures, but they are perfect for therapy and rehabilitation needs.

Vision

These colourful planets can be placed in a bedroom or play area. Because they glow in the dark, they can be used in a variety of ways to promote healthy visual stimulation.

Oral Motor

Nothing says summer like blowing bubbles. Mix up your bubble play with a fun-shaped bubble blower to encourage your child to strengthen oral motor skills.

Touch

Try one of these colourful and textured massage rollers to get your child to focus on the sense of touch.

Olfactory

You might have heard of trying essential oils, but diffusers can get too hot to touch and some oils aren’t safe for sensitive skin. Instead, try some colorful scented tea-light candles to engage the sense of smell. Without lighting the candles, of course, allow your child to handle each one and experience the new scents.
