6 Fun Gifts For Sensory Seeking Kids

Every year I am always looking to add new things to help my sensory seeking kids survive the winter when they can’t get outside as much. My girls are always looking for some sensory activity to help settle them after school or just when they have too many wiggles and need something to do.

I picked out our six favorite items to use. Each of these is perfect for kids and some are simple and easy. I have loved using each of them.

Each of these items has a different use and sometimes you can use together. I’m always looking at easy to do activities that make their life and mine easier.

Kore Patented WOBBLE Chair is one of my alltime favorite chairs to use with my girls. They do their homework sitting on them and wiggle all they want without me worrying. My middle will sit on the chair just to sit and wiggle. She uses it a lot during movies. Check out my Review of the Kore Stool.

TheraPutty is a favorite of my girls. They each have a color strenght they love. When my middle is really needing some deep work with her hands I pull blue and she plays with it for a long while. I love to have them hide coins in it and then dig it out.

Water beads are a sensory bin filler that I use all the time! I’ve use clear, colored and more! Plus they work great with so many different objects.

Here are some examples of how we have used them.

Scooter Board with Handles are so much funt o scoota round the room. We put tape on the floor and they follow the track. They sit on them or lay on them and get the movement and deep pressure that they need. Plus they have tons of fun while doing it!

Balance cushion is something we use may ways. We have done different balance exercise on them or just stand on them while watching something. We have put them on chairs at the table to get to help with the wiggles. I like that it has two textures to pick form as well.

Champion Sports Parachute one we just love. We have the 6 feet version and it is great for small spaces and helps really get the wiggles out of my girls. You can use this with just a few people and enjoy it. My girls also like just playing on their own with it.

Each of these is some of our favorites I hope that you enjoy them.

  1. Some of my kids’ all time favourites there too. They love scooter boards, although they make do with skateboards here at home. We also use fitballs for their fidgeting/balancing balls for watching TV, doing work and generally bouncing around. It makes such a difference to their concentration and ability to stay calmer!
