The In a Pickle kit is a large sturdy cylinder (representing a pickle jar) packed with prompts for sensory processing activities, on thick quality cards.
Each of the prompts are specially designed to help children learn to regulate.
The cards are colour coded according to: alertness, calm, balance, heavy work and resistance activities.
In a Pickle has been designed by therapists, and can be used at home, school or in clinic.
It is suitable for solo or group play.
There are multiple ways this resource and its cards can be used.
* Choose a category, take turns selecting a card and performing the activity.
* Choose a card and act it out (charades) and others need to guess what activity the active player was required to do
* Select a card to finish each session
* Work through cards and notice how you feel after each activity.
* Sort cards into activities to start the day, for transitions or for calming
* Use the cards as a sensory break throughout the day
Examples of activities:
Resistance: pop bubble wrap, stretch exercise band 5 different ways, play with putty, use blocks with magnets or velcro, spray a water bottle over a plant
Alerting: rock fast in bilibo, crash onto pillow or beanbag, stretch up high then bend over and touch the ground, jump from one spot to another
Calm: listen to soothing music, find items in rice, sit and watch a fish tank or slow moving light, pop a weighted item on lap or shoulders
Heavy work: push a ball through lycra tunnel, do 10 standing push ups against a wall, dry mop the floor, carry 5 large books in a wheelbarrow or trolley
Balance: hang upside down over bed or lounge, be a super hero on a swing (lie prone), balance a book o your head and walk across the room, play leap frog over 5 pillows.
The In a Pickle Kit promotes self regulation, supports sensory seekers, sensory avoiders and sensory over-responders.
