Parents, teachers, and OT's can use this resource to help kids improve sensory processing skills.

Designed by an occupational therapist, SUMMER EXPLORER presents 8 sensory activities in the areas of noise, touch, and smell. It is for all children, pre-k through first grade, though older kids benefit too.

The summertime activities are very suitable and motivating for kids who dislike getting their hands messy and for kids who are sensitive to noises and smells. Activities also help children in other ways as well. Learning to pay greater attention to the details of sound is a step toward better reading. Increasing a child’s attention to the “feel” of objects contributes to improved fine motor skills.

Sensory summertime activities include 4 tactile, 3 auditory, and 1 olfactory sensory task.

The 4 Tactile summertime activities include:

1- Touching Nature

2- Washing Rocks

3- Let's Make Quicksand

4- Wet and Dry

The 3 Auditory summertime activities include:

1- Hide & Seek

2- Summer Sounds

3- Bird Songs

The Olfactory summertime activity is:

1- Flower Smells

These activities can be adapted to suit all children and pointers are given throughout on how to support sensory sensitive children and encourage them to participate. Variations on all activities also provide fine motor tips and practice with math counting skills.
