So why?? Well the other day at therapy they had Michael picking them up with both hands to throw in occupational therapy. He loved it and it is GREAT exercise for him. When I felt the rice in the sock it felt very similar to those fun pillows they sell at Brookstone with the silky feel. Sounds weird, but trust me they are fun to "feel".
You can punch them, swing them around (don't hit anyone or anything), stomp on them and express feelings safely.
You can squish them easily- and they feel fun!
You could easily make faces on them which could be really fun- making sock people or animals!
AND for little who need strength building it is a fun weight to play with!
Weight- weighted blankets are great! This is an easy version to place in the lap while doing homework or other quiet activities. You can lay them on their shoulders, on their stomach as they lay down, back. This gives your child a deeper touch feeling which is quite soothing to those who crave it! :)
So there is your sensory fun tip!! :)
Hope your week is going GREAT!!!!
