Sensory Balloons

Ibby is very sensory based. He also has more, let's say, behavioral issues than his big brother. I've noticed that playing with playdoh really helps relieve his stress. I try to always have a mini playdoh in my purse to prevent any meltdowns. Today we made sensory Balloons. I filled two with kidney beams, two with dry oatmeal, two with popcorn kernels and two with baking soda. I told them they are for holding and matching (not sports)... So far they seem to be a success. Inshalalh it helps.... My husband has requested that he gets one too :)

  1. This looks like a perfect solution for distraction.....Each of the boys trying to figure out the answer in their own individual way.

    Yusuf is going to "talk" his way to the correct answer.
    Ibby is really focusing on how he "feels "about the possibilities.
    And of course Summaiya if allowed would be doing the "taste test"
