I’m excited to announce the release of The Sleep Sleeve! This has been two years in the making and is hopefully going to be a game changer for our sensory kiddos. The Sleep Sleeve is a weighted blanket alternative that offers compression and proprioceptive input without the additional warmth. Check it out at the link in my profile. #occupationaltherapy #occupationaltherapist #occupationaltherapyassistant #occupationaltherapystudent #cota #spedteacher #specialeducation #sensoryprocessingdisorder #spd #weightedblanket #sensorytools #autismmom #autism #thesensorytoolbox

Wow! I’m so blown away by this book. The idea of shedding light on autism through the eyes of a dog is absolutely brilliant.

Rarely used toys can suddenly become new & exciting again when you switch up your play environment - which often extends the amount of time they’re busy playing! 🙌🏼💚 • 
I used picture hanging strips to tape the Duplo baseplate to the wall & then left Mr1 to play! This was also a great way to encourage him to stand & balance.

Here's a variation of our Mess Free Painting post we shared a few months back! 🎨 Allowing Babies to experience Sensory Play, minus the mess! 🙌🏼 I used a heavy duty, double lock Zip Lock bag with Cardstock & paint. It's important to use Cardstock over regular paper if you’re wanting to keep your Baby’s masterpiece, as it'll hold up to the excess paint. 
The Cardstock I use is @eckersleys Winslow Watercolour Paper. It's quite expensive ($45 for 100 sheets) but it holds up to my little ones using ALL the paint & glue! I try and grab it whenever it's on special! 
The Paint I use for all our Art projects is @montmarteart Poster Paint. It's my go-to paint as they have a great range of beautiful vibrant colours & most importantly doesn't stain! #craftylivingkids #acraftyliving_baby #acraftyliving_art

🎄🍓Festive Lunch Boxes 🍓🎄
Cookie cutters are a great way to add a little something special to a lunch box. I keep a container or small bowl of seasonal cookie cutters on my kitchen counter so if inspiration strikes, I can cut a little tree out of the kiwi (and then eat the scraps 😉). However, I want you to know that if you don’t cut your child’s sandwich into shapes, that’s okay! I happen to get joy out of making “cute” lunches, but don’t feel bad if you don’t. Feeding your kid(s) is enough. ❤️💚
