31 Days Of Winter Sensory Activities (for all ages!)

The weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas are a lot of fun around here.

We decorate together.

We drink hot chocolate.

We watch as many Christmas movies as possible.

It’s fun, but it is also overstimulating and anxiety inducing for my boys. The unique sensory experience of the holidays (think Christmas music blaring with an artificial pine candles burning) combined with a different routine can be challenging.

With this in mind, I want to head into the most wonderful time of the year prepared.  This year, this means starting our day outdoors, and as many sensory activities as possible.

In order to make it easy on all of us, I thought I would list out 31 days of winter sensory activities for my kids and for yours.
