Happy Easter, everyone!
Thanks for stopping by my humble blog. If you're here, that means you're most likely taking part in RJ Scott's Autism Awareness Blog hop. This is an incredible event and I'm very proud to be part of it.
My niece, Addy, has Autism. She's one of the brightest, sweetest people on earth. Holidays can be a little stressful for her, as loud noises and sensory overload can happen fast. People with Autism may be over or under sensitive, or both, at different times (source: here).
Since my post falls on Easter, I wanted to do a little bit of research to find some fun activities that kids can do today. I found an amazing blog that lists a ton of amazing crafts and educational games kids can play to help develop their sensory skills. These include some fun toy ideas as well, so it still lands on the overall theme. :)
You can check out the full list here, but I wanted to share some of my favorites that I found:
This looks like a blast! The bin is filled with waterproof toys to play in the sand and water. You can make it Easter themed and paint the shells for added color! (That's what I would do) Or maybe make the water pink. Lots of ideas.
How perfect is this for Easter? Pastels, sparkles and a classic, creative toy. Good stuff!
Definately go and check out the blog linked above if you want to learn how to make these as well as get tons of new ideas. I'm going to be sending this over to my brother for ideas for Addy, because I know she'll dig them. She's a girly-girl, so anything with flowers and sparkles is right up her ally.
If you can, there is a fantastic charity that works with Autistic children that would love your support. If you donate towards the charity, email me a screenshot of your donation and I'll send over a free ebook of any of my stories for free!
