Sensory Fun Photos

A Summer of Sensory Fun...
The theme for this month's Blog Carnival for the SPD Blogger Network  is SPD Photos.  This is the first summer where we have had a TON of FUN.  Granted I now know activities that help to regulate Crash, and fill his day with them, but they are activities that all kids can enjoy, and Crash was right there with them enjoying away!

Crashing in the water (Not only does Crash get to crash into the water he gets awesome input in his joints while being thrown around)


Rolling in the grass (He is getting the input he craves and tollerating the tactile input of the grass...how awesome!)














Frolicking in the sand (Getting input from the waves crashing on him as well as by bear walking, and again tollerating the tactile input of wet sand!)














Feeling Fishy Fish (Crash found the rocking of the boat to be very calming, and I have to say held way more fish than his Mama)



















Spinning yourself silly (Vestibular input is very exciting at the park)


















Swinging upside down












Climbing higher and higher (Crash has really increased his core strength and can get his legs over his head and scare his mama half to death climbing on top of the equipment).












Munching blackberries (the yummy taste was too much to resist)












Calming Lavender baths












Body pressure in his sock


















Chilling in his box












We have EXPERIENCED Summer this year, and had a lot of fun!  For more Fun ideas visit Hartley's Life with 3 Boys to visit the SPD Blog Carnival full of links to photos of sensory fun.

  2. You have your self a seeer, don't you! :) Those photos could EASILY be my Gabriel at that age (I bet if I looked, I could match them frame for frame!). I love the one in the water - my boys all love to be 'tossed' or swung around in the pool.

    Thanks for sharing!
