COUNSELING RESOURCES FOR FAMILIES
Fidget toys can be extremely helpful to all children who have trouble sitting still, focusing, and getting distracted.
Most of these toys can be purchased on Amazon, or found at local stores like Wal-Mart, Dollar Store, or Target, often with toys, dollar bins, or baby items.
**Please speak to your child's teacher before sending them to school with a fidget toy.
Calm Down Items
Children are still learning how to deal with their emotions. Sometimes they can feel overwhelmed by the simplest task or get angry for what seems to be for no reason at all. For times like these, having a calm down space or items on hand that can help them manage their feelings, is very helpful.
Some items to use in a calm down space would be:
- Simon's Hook
- My mouth is a volcano
- Lying up a storm
- Is it right to fight?
- Bucket filling from A to Z
- Angry Octopus
- What if everybody did that?
- Wilma Jean the worry machine
