I keep a set of favorite sensory fidgets in my rolling cart. While I have a mix of different toys, three of them are my favorites. Every couple years, I need to reorder them because they disappear in backpacks and in classrooms. I just got my new ones in the mail and it reminded me to share them with you!
I use sensory toys with a variety of students. These include children with ADHD, sensory processing disorder, or autism.
There are many fidgets that you can use but these few really seem to work for me.
The marble fidgets are great for students to keep in their pockets when they have to go to class. They are a small sewed tube that include a marble. They are small and discrete. Perfect for a student to grab and use in a group or for an older student to keep in his/her pocket.
The Tangle Jr. fidgets come in a variety of textures. I use the Jr. versions. They bend and flex and fit perfectly in hand.
The squishy bracelet is a nice alternative to the squishy balls and tubes and kids seems to like. The children can put it on their arm and then it is less likely to be rolling off the table and creating a distraction.
If you have other favorites, let me know which ones you use!
