I received products from Fun and Function to facilitate this post. The thoughts and opinions below are entirely my own. This post includes affiliate links.
It can be challenging to come up with sensory activities that our children haven’t tried! They participate in creative activities in therapy, preschool and home. When I’m running out of ideas, I look to Fun and Function for inspiration as well as new therapy tools to implement in our daily lives. My children spent hours playing with these six products and, weeks later, still ask to play with each one! Knock it out of the park with these six kid-friendly sensory products:
These are two products that you can purchase together, but present to your kids as separate activities. Our kids enjoyed watching the squares and spheres expand in the water. They then spent an hour digging through the squares and spheres, enjoying the wiggly jiggly sensory experience! I plan to pull these out on the next rainy weekend for some indoor fun.
This three-ounce Emotions Putty (Calm) changes colors as you work with it. When the putty is cold, it is blue. As you work with it, the color changes to purple. Encourage your child’s focus while developing their hand strength through hard work.
Our kids loved the bright colors of this rainbow-colored fidget! It’s perfect for manipulating, braiding, chewing, biting and touching. This fidget has a clip to easily attach it to your child’s clothing.
The discovery putty is the sensory toy my kids fight over! They love taking turns digging through the putty to find the objects hidden inside. On any given day, you’d likely hear my kids exclaiming, “Mommy, hide the vehicles!” Four different types of discovery putty offer tactile exploration and strengthening fine motor skills. It’s a versatile therapy tool that supports color recognition, speech, math and language skills.
Your child can climb inside this body sock and experience resistance as they stretch their limbs. We use this therapy tool when our children start to get upset and the heavy work calms them. It’s really awesome to watch! The Space Explorer is great for spacial and body awareness for the sensory seeker.
