(Nearly) Free Sensory Play Saturday

As you may know from my recent (Nearly) Free Sensory Saturday posts, I love shopping at the Dollar Tree for treatment ideas. Here's another great sensory idea with materials from Dollar Tree.

FLOAM!



This stuff is great and only $1. Kids find it weird and interesting at the same time. It's sticky but doesn't leave a residue, and can be molded into anything, just like playdough. It's great to see how kids react to it sticking to their hands and clothes, among others.



Materials:
Gazz-It!

Cost: $1

Skills Addressed:

  • Sensory Integration
  • Frustration Tolerance
  • Inhibition (I can't even tell you how many kids try eating this!)
  • Fine and visual motor skills including pinch, design copy, bilateral use of hands for rolling snakes and balls

Note: As I mentioned above, kids try to eat this ALL THE TIME! Watch to make sure your child/student is not eating the Gazz-It. Also, this material does become super sticky on sweaty hands.

Go out, raid your dollar tree and start your (play) therapy sessions!
