6 Activities To Do with a Soft Blanket
A soft blanket has been a favorite staple in therapy bags and classrooms for a long time now. (An inexpensive vellux has been a personal favorite - has a little stretch, durable, soft and cozy, easy to clean!) Here are 6 favorite activities to do.
can be used for group parachute games. Children can run under 1 or 2 at a time and switch places. Bounce small balls to get them off the blanket, or work together to keep a larger beachball on the blanket.
Roll child up and play "hotdog" adding pretend ingredients giving different tactile input. (Remember not to cover the face and ask frequently if they are "cooked & ready to come out" - child should have full control of the activity)
Group "Monkeys on the Bed": all students lay flat on floor on their stomachs. Spread the blanket out on top of them. The first child/monkey then rolls over the top of the blanket to the other end of the row. Fun way to give everyone some deep pressure - but can excite bevhavior.
Quiet time Tent; Drape over a student desk or 2 chairs to make an enclosed space. Great for calming and quiet time activities, maybe do a pegboard, string beads or read a book together
Pretend Beach Blanket: Spread the blanket out on the floor or mat to lay on and use it as a way to give a little tactile input when playing.
Rice/Sensory Bucket drop cloth: Spread under the child and sensory bin on the floor before playing to make clean up a little easier.
Use these pictures and beginning of sentences to write or tell a story. Great for handwriting practice or creative writing. Also a fun way to pass the time while waiting in line, traffic or for dinner to be served!
