Great idea for non messy play that still encourages new experiences with touch and texture #sensoryprocessingdisorder#tactileplay#occupationaltherapy#specialeducation#spedteacher#autismmom#thesensorytoolbox . #Repost @acraftyliving (@get_repost)
Here's a variation of our Mess Free Painting post we shared a few months back! 🎨 Allowing Babies to experience Sensory Play, minus the mess! 🙌🏼 I used a heavy duty, double lock Zip Lock bag with Cardstock & paint. It's important to use Cardstock over regular paper if you’re wanting to keep your Baby’s masterpiece, as it'll hold up to the excess paint.
The Cardstock I use is @eckersleys Winslow Watercolour Paper. It's quite expensive ($45 for 100 sheets) but it holds up to my little ones using ALL the paint & glue! I try and grab it whenever it's on special!
The Paint I use for all our Art projects is @montmarteart Poster Paint. It's my go-to paint as they have a great range of beautiful vibrant colours & most importantly doesn't stain! #craftylivingkids#acraftyliving_baby#acraftyliving_art
😭 A lunch like this would definitely convince me to eat my veggies! Such a cute idea! #Repost @heather_kidskitchen (@get_repost)
🎄🍓Festive Lunch Boxes 🍓🎄
Cookie cutters are a great way to add a little something special to a lunch box. I keep a container or small bowl of seasonal cookie cutters on my kitchen counter so if inspiration strikes, I can cut a little tree out of the kiwi (and then eat the scraps 😉). However, I want you to know that if you don’t cut your child’s sandwich into shapes, that’s okay! I happen to get joy out of making “cute” lunches, but don’t feel bad if you don’t. Feeding your kid(s) is enough. ❤️💚

@yumboxlunch box: almond butter, hemp heart, and raspberry-chia jam sandwich (with dried blueberry “eyes”), spinach 🌲 crackers (working on this recipe), 🍓🥝🍐, peas, a baby bel cheese, cashews, dried cranberries, and a raspberry.
So many ‘challenging’ behaviours we witness are actually sensory seeking behaviours. Rather than labelling them ‘stimming’ be a sensory detective and try and give pupils more socially appropriate ways of having their needs met! Here are some great ideas.. #Repost @thesensorytoolbox (@get_repost)
