Summer Sensory Activities to Do at Home

Sensory input never stops. We are constantly bombarded by sights, sounds, smells, movement, and textures. For some kids, this can be very overwhelming. Or perhaps certain things are unbearable, like touching something squishy. During school, children engage in daily sensory processing activities. But over the summer, they may lack the same stimulation. There are plenty of fun activities you can do as a family that incorporate play while also letting your child slowly adjust to different sensory experiences.

 

Think about what your child likes (and dislikes) and how you can make different sensations more enjoyable and fun. Remember to go slowly and let your child ease into things. Maybe today they only touch the paint for two minutes, but later in the week it’s five or ten minutes. Be patient and keep exposing them to different textures and movements. It takes time for them to become more tolerable.

PediaPlex makes therapy fun for kids so they don’t even realize they’re working and learning. If you’re concerned that your child may have a sensory processing disorder, or are looking for treatment services, PediaPlex can help. Support your child in more effectively engaging with the world around them.
