The sweetest age. These angels are just beginning to wake up to their sensory and motor needs. As babies and toddlers start to roll, crawl, walk and run, they are learning to explore their environment using their senses. Great gifts for these littlest ones include tools to wake up the senses and encourage safe, secure motion.
They are on the go now but starting to understand their place in relation to others. Emotional intelligence becomes a crucial part of learning how to relate as well as self-regulate throughout a school day. Great gift items for these kids help identify “how do I feel?” and which movement or sensory activities will help.
Tweens are incredible! Movement is crucial to keeping the sensory system in check with the increasing demands that school and outside activities place on them. Popular gifts for these older kids encourage socialization, movement and sensory integration.
Mr. and Mrs. Independence just arrived and the key is providing them with opportunities for social, emotional, physical and sensory hygiene. The coolness factor is important for older kids, and these gift ideas deliver.
