making your own fidget

Fidgets are wonderful tools to have to use for self-regulation. They can be used to calm or alert a student.  Also, they can be used for tactile awareness.  These are great to have all over the classrooms to be used by the students. What could be a better activity for the kids to make their own fidgets!

Take a baloon and fill it with one of the various items (or something else that would work just as great!):
  • sand
  • rice
  • lentils
  • popcorn kernals

The fidget can also be bought at stores for usually less than three dollars, but I think it would be more fun to make with the children.
