Time to get into more depth about my sensory room and the great finds that my OT and student teacher OT found for me. There are a few finds of my own that I added but, really like I said in this post Sensory Room Part 1 my inspiration was started from those two wonderful ladies that got my mind thinking in terms of the senses! So, in this post I'm going to use the same pictures that I had in my first post but, I'm going to explain what the items in the pictures are used for and if I know, where they were found! All about the sharing!
In this first picture you will find my "fidget table". I have a student that will sit on an exercise ball and bounce while at this tale and play with the items on it. Starting from left to right there is a mini pillow pet (black) which when pressed will glow different colors. There is also squish balls some with lights in them and others without. Those I found at dollar stores and the Target dollar spot. The "frog" looking things are massagers that I found at Aldi's for $5. The kids love them, and there feet glow too! Then I have the standard lava lamp (five below) and sets of bins with small items and a homemade light box. This is a tupperware container, christmas lights inside with a hole cut out so the cord will fit and plug it in! The student teacher OT that I had made this and the kids like putting glow in the dark stars and see through chips and mess with mixing the colors.
