More Fun: Basic Pack
1 x Thunder Tubes – Great for use with Gum Tree, Pencil Pine and Forest Activities. Provides an additional cognitive component of listening skills as the Thunder Sound means children are pretending that it is a stormy day – large body movements but feet remain stationary.
1 x Rain Stick – Such a relaxing sound – use this instrument to indicate the Gentle Breeze in the tree activities or as a background sound for the Slow Deep breathing exercise, or to introduce/end the Muscle relaxation activity.
1 packet of Koosh Pencil Grips (5 in a pkt) – Children put their forefinger through the loop and “cuddle” the Koosh in their palm with the pinky and ring finger. A great sensory tool to help children develop a functional pencil grip.
1 packet of Resistance Bands (2 in a pkt) – Great for using with the Croc Hunter activity – the Resistance bands help children to build strength in the hands, arms and shoulders. Children sit or stand opposite each other – Lean in to slacken the bands and pull outwards in a rowing motion – taking care not to over-extend the bands.
