And these aren’t just any stocking stuffers…we’ve rounded up all kinds of great fine motor, gross motor, and sensory toys that your little ones will love and that will be perfect for promoting healthy development!
8 || Suspend Game – We’re loving this cool game from Melissa and Doug – kids will need lots of concentration, control, and coordination to win!
10 || Bathtub Crayons – Have a kiddo who loves bathtime? These are the perfect fit! Warning: you may not be able to get him out of the tub once he gets his hands on these! Another great option for early writing and drawing practice!
12 || Personalized Krazy Straws – We already know that sucking through a straw is great for providing calming and organizing oral sensory input...what we didn’t know was that Krazy Straws could be personalized with your child’s name! What!?! Make snack time a blast with these awesome straws!
13 || Animal Balloon Kit – Another great oral sensory activity? Blowing up balloons! Add to the fun with this awesome kit that lets kids turn their balloons into all kinds of animals!
14 || Yoga Pretzels Cards – When it comes to activities to promote healthy sensory motor development, you pretty much can’t beat yoga for kids. These colorful cards are great for introducing poses to newbies or for making yoga an everyday practice for veterans.
15 || Magic Moves Wand – This little gem is part magic wand/light show and part gross motor boot camp instructor! It features 90 fun and physical commands like “stomp like an elephant” or “soar like an eagle”. Gross motor fun for kids of all ages!
