Stitch Sensory Tube
Because the ‘Stitch Sensory Tube’ is extremely stretchy & tactile, you can have the user do several things. First, climb inside & ‘commando crawl’ your way through. Have them stretch inside into as many shapes as possible using every part of their body, and watch the silly looks they can create.
Have them hold each pose for 10 or 15 seconds to increase body awareness, balance, and or proprioception. To build up social skills try using with a partner holding each end & rolling a ball back & forth, it takes a bit of balance & coordination! or just snuggle up inside with your favourite blanket.
Use a gym. or therapy ball (up to70cm not included) pushing it though or punching the ball through the tube- see our video for other ideas.
Why on earth would they do these things, you ask? Most importantly, because it’s FUN! Second, because it sparks creativity and imagination. Third, because it is quite therapeutic, and it feels good.
‘Sensory Tube’ will help children with sensory processing disorders to work on “position in space” skills. They must kinesthetically feel what their bodies are doing and how they are coordinating their body movements. Watching themselves in a mirror, or creating shadows, will help them develop this proprioceptive sense , which is often dysfunctional in children with sensory integration dysfunction / sensory processing disorders .
Another therapeutic activity the “Sensory Tube” provides is heavy work/deep pressure input that is both calming and organizing.
Through all of these movement activities in the lycra “stitch sensory tube”, they will have comfortable, resistive material to push against and have pushing against them. This will benefit children with tactile defensiveness as well as the sensory seeking kids (you know them…the movers, shakers, crashers, endless “energizer bunnies”!)
NOTE: The “Stitch Sensory Tube” can also be used for sensory overloaded kids or children with Autism, PDD, Asperger’s, or ADD/ADHD for a calming, sensory escape! Just let them play with it in a quiet place.
