Sensory activities don’t always mean high-energy, fast-faced or messy activities. Some sensory activities help to calm children and bring about peace and calm to their little hearts. Lavender is a calming scent and can provide more grounding to a child who is struggling with anxiety or who is having a hard time self-regulating.
