How to Make a Travel Sensory Kit for Kids

I'm a wee bit passionate about using calm down kits with kids.

In the past, I've compiled a list of calm down tools for small kids and even one geared towards older kids, both of which will be handy for referencing when putting together a travel sized calm down kit for your kids.

But those ideas are mostly designed for making a larger kit to use at home as part of a calm down corner.

So if you are interested in making a more miniature version of a calm down kit, then you'll definitely want to check out what's included in ours and what other ideas to consider when making your own. I cover all of that over on the CBC Parents website.
