For us, I would say a couple......

  1. Carrying around loaded bags....she is the "Bag Lady" : )

  2. Swinging

  3. Pillow Fights

  4. Throwing Olivia up in the Air

  5. Coloring (just as of late)

These all really seem to help calm her and re-center her.

We have had a bunch of favorites, and our 7-year-old lets us know now which one he would most respond to!

1) Jumping on the bed, maybe also with pillowfight.

2) Most effective and long-lasting --- SWIMMING!!

3) getting pulled around in sensory bag full of stuffed animals.

4) massage and joint compression.

5) Water -- hands in water, shower, bath, washing dishes ...

Gabriel (almost 4yrs.) loves wrestling with daddy, getting tossed onto the couch/bed, pushing heavy objects, playdough, anything with vibration, and drawing (this calms him too).
