A huge thanks to our friends at Fun and Function for sponsoring todays post! Keep scrolling for fun Easter Basket Ideas for Kids on the Autism Spectrum!
Happy Friday! Can you believe it’s now officially Spring? It’s just starting to warm up a bit here in Michigan and I am absolutely LOVING it! Last week we shared a list of some of our Easter Basket Favorites but today I wanted to share some items that we’ll be sneaking into Wyatt’s Easter Basket this year that are perfect for kiddos on the Autism Spectrum.
Ready to take a peek inside this colorful and fun Easter basket? Let’s go!
Take the beach with you — without the mess! This fun and colorful bag is perfect for a rainy day inside, or long trip in the car. It contains multipule activities, a clear vinyl window to move sand and discover 11 hidden pieces, and so much more! On the bag exterior, pull the coated coils of the octopus to engage fidgety fingers. Or play with the starfish that is nesting behind the white mesh. The soft fabric bag is weighted for proprioceptive input. I let my little guy Levi test this one out and he had a BLAST – so I just know Wyatt is going to LOVE it in his Easter basket this year!
This sweet little snail is just the cutest! The Vibrating Sensory Snail is super soft, multi-textured, and if you gently pull the string it causes the snail’s belly to vibrate. The vibrations are soothing and work to stimulate the under responsive, and calm the over responsive. This snail features a stretchy blue antennae, curly red neck and fuzzy green back for added sensory exploration.
This Emotions Putty is a color-changing putty that combines both heavy work, tactile stimulation, and visual stimulation, too. The putty is soft and can be twisted, rolled, and stretched. As you play it slowly turns from purple to blue, because it warms up with the warmth of hands. If you want to turn it purple again, simply stick it in the fridge. Easy-peasy!
How CUTE is this Robot Chewy? I was immeditately drawn to this chewy because of the thickness and the shape, plus that cool design! I just knew it would be a hit with Wyatt, and I can’t wait to give this to him for Easter!
If you purchase only one thing from today’s post – let this Weighted Fidget Lizard be it. It is just too cool to pass up! It’s got a smooth texture to it and the tail is perfect for twirling with your fingers. It’s also weighted which makes it great for that sensory input. And it’s great for tips in the car, or to throw in a backpack for school!
