A new sensory toy

Right before we left for vacation F had a visit from his therapy coordinator.  He hits about 6-8 months behind on her tests, as usual.  He seems to be weight and muscle oriented for comfort so we talked again about a weighted blanket (which you'll see in a future crafty post).

For the time being, his coordinator whipped out 2 lbs of rice (75 cent bags at Target), a tube sock, and some duct tape.  F was a little nervous of it (he told me it was "yuck") so we let him color on it and play with his cars on it.  He's still not using it on his lap or shoulders for comfort, but maybe this idea will help another child out there feel calmer.
