If your child struggles with sensory processing, it can be challenging to try and change the way their brain processes the world around them. Whether they cover their ears to certain sounds or are uncomfortable by the feeling of certain textures, when a child is suffering from SPD, it can severely interfere with their normal, everyday functioning. Kids Activity Blog has come up with some great DIY sensory home tips and tricks to help children with Sensory Processing Disorders.

Ideas For Creating A SPD Friendly Home

Ball pit

Create a ball pit using a blowup pool and plastic balls.


Weighted lap belt

Crashpad

Monster Spray

Is your child afraid of “monsters” under the bed?” Make a bottle of Monster spray to help them overcome their fears. Mix water and an essential oil that helps with anxiety in a spray bottle and place it next to their bed.
