This fidget set is great if your child likes variety, or you’re more sure what kind of fidget would be helpful for them. We have these set up as a fidget station in our homeschool room.
This vibrating cushion is wonderful for proprioception and sensory input. My kids really enjoyed it when they were feeling unregulated. I like this one because it is a little bit bigger than some of the others, and it is easy to clean.
Hoverboards are just plain fun. They are also helpful in developing coordination and balance. This particular hoverboard connects to bluetooth, so your child can enjoy music or audiobooks while they cruise around. It also comes in a variety of colors.
My kids LOVE soft blankets. This might be the coziest weighted blanket I could find, and I am definitely adding it to my cart. The stitching ensures equal weight distribution, which I appreciate. As a general rule, you want your weighted blanket to be about 10% of the users total weight.
My kids love figuring out how things work. I feel like a set of gears is a great way to do just that. I like this set because there are plenty of pieces for multiple children to play with at the same time, and it comes with its own storage container.
My kids found this ball in a Sunday school room at our church, and they are obsessed! This ball has some weight to it, but it is also soft and squishy. I plan to order 3, so each of my children has their own.
An oldie but a goodie. Jump ropes are going into stockings at our house this year.
Hues and Cues is a favorite board game in our house. It is designed to be played by the whole family, regardless of age. My favorite aspect is the game encourages the players to root for each other’s success.
This book is actually part of our homeschool materials, but it is WONDERFUL. It has helped my four year old learn to take deep breaths when upset, which you know is an extremely helpful skill.
Legos. All the Legos. This is a great little starter set and includes an instruction booklet to make a variety of things. Plus you can use the container as storage.
This is a beginning chapter book series that my girls love. The illustrations are bright and colorful, which really helps keep their attention.
For your aspiring artist. This light up tracing pad is perfect for kids who are learning how to draw or who need some extra fine motor skills practice.
I loved this thing as a kid. This is a great gift for an ADHD child, because it gives some vestibular stimulation.
Tools AND dinosaurs? What more could a kid need? This is definitely on my four year old’s list.
