Busy Hands

Sensory Kiddos often express the need to “fidgit” with their hands; to keep their hands busy. Keeping hands busy helps the brain to focus and so having those “go-to’s” for busy little fingers can be so important for learning.

I’ve compiled a list of our favorites, as well as some new ideas to strengthen concentration and focus.

Lego
Play dough
Kinetic sand
Sensory bins: popcorn, rice, pasta, glass rocks, buttons, zippers
Modeling clay
Chewys
Beads
Elastics
Rainbow loom
Spool knitting
A therapy pet; fur
Straws
Silly putty
Squishy balls
iPad
Bubbles

Do you have a great idea for busy hands? Leave me your ideas in the comments. Would love to hear it!
