Except for a few new holiday shopping commercials this year, everyone knows Santa brings the best presents to open on Christmas morning! But just in case he needs a little help, Sensory Sun is here to help with this list of sensory stocking stuffer ideas we LOVE!
Have some great ideas too? Just share the love by leaving a comment below!
INCHBUG BRAILLE & PRINT ORBIT NAME LABELS:
InchBug.com offers Braille and print name labels for your child's favorite bottles, sippy cups and thermos! They're a cute little 'bracelet' that fits snug around the cup and won't slip off. Pre-printed labels have the child's name in print and braille, but if your child's name isn't already on the list you can purchase a custom label with the name in print and braille text that reads "inchbug". These are great for kids on the go, play dates where there are a million look-alike cups sitting around, and it's not everyday you find your kid's name in braille on a product you don't have to adapt!

SMENS & SMENCILS:
Make print writing more fun with these holiday scented pencils and pens! These creative scented writing tools are made from 100% recycled newspapers or recycled plastic, and are packaged in corn-based biodegradable plastic that keeps it smelling fresh! Choose from holiday scents like sugarplum, gingerbread, candy cane, cinnamon and holiday cheer. Our favorite is the Holiday 2-Pack where you can try both the smencil and smen for only $5.00! Order from their site soon and you'll still get them in time for Christmas.

Sassy (R) Development Sensory Balls are great for infants and toddlers. They're small enough for little hands to grasp and provide a variety of great stimulation for blind and visually impaired children, as well as sighted! The set of 3 balls provides focus on three senses with different textures, high contrast visual appeal (great for low vision!), and sound. As your baby grows, they are perfect for encouraging 'drop and find' skills, crawling and throwing.

REUSABLE WATER BOTTLE:
There are a lot of reusable water bottle brands out there, so we're not going to narrow our recommendation down to just one. Reusable water bottles are a great way to show children that their health and our planet's is important! Don't just recycle plastic (mostly petroleum based anyway! yuck!), use a BPA free water bottle time and time again. They have fun colors and prints, varying spouts for about any ability, and comfy little koozies that keep your hands warm and any condensation inside. The most important qualities of a great reusable water bottle are: BPA free, 100% food grade stainless steel material, and spouts that are BPA and phthalate free! Check out brands like Cynergreen, Klean Kanteen, and Sigg. (Registered trademarks not associated with Sensory Sun.)
HO! HO! HO! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
