Before COVID-19 I kept a sensory tub. I would change the filling every month and my patients would use it to help their regulation as we worked. Now that I’m more concerned about the kids sharing germs (which was already a concern since some kids inevitably put parts of the sensory bin into their mouth then spit it back into the container) I’ve switched to individual containers of sensory supports. I label each child’s sensory support and throw them away every 6 months.
Here are the my favorite sensory supports for kids to choose from…
- Aaron’s Thinking Putty mini size – these don’t get sticky like a lot of the slime packs.
- Kinetic Sand Multipack – this one is very popular and I love how easy the sand is to clean up!
- Kinetic Sand Ice Cream Cone Pack – the “apple pie ice cream cone” from the multipack I’ve been getting is by far the most popular one in there. I’m excited to try the ice cream cone multipack next!
