A part of our daily routine in the Senior Haven is to engage in sensory activities. Here some of the pupils made their own stress ball at home. Both the process of making the ball and the final product itself should provide feedback that helps to self-regulate. I love the work the students have produced and am very keen to create my own stress ball myself ☺️
