How to Create a Sensory Activities Scavenger Hunt for Kids

Long before our son was diagnosed with High Functioning Autism, we already knew he had some pretty major sensory processing issues.

Like many other kids who struggle with sensory processing, our son had some major sensory seeking and sensory avoiding behaviors.

Out of desperation to control his behavior and help him with emotional regulation, we stumbled across the idea of a sensory diet.

A sensory diet is a personalized routine of physical activities and accommodations to provide a level of stimulation that is uniquely tailored to each child. 

The goal is to find a “just right” level of sensory input for a child in each of the seven sensory domains (auditory, visual, tactile, gustatory, olfactory, proprioceptive, and vestibular).

Sensory activities are especially helpful for children with sensory processing disorder, autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, and any child who struggles with regulating emotions, behavior, or responses to sensory stimuli. You can learn more about Sensory Processing Issues in Kids here.

Sensory activities can help children with learning, focus, behavior, and emotional regulation.

The best part is, a sensory diet can be easily created by parents and can be done at school, at home, or even outside! You can read more about how to create your child’s personalized sensory diet in this post.

A Sensory Activity Scavenger Hunt is a great way to get kids outside and incorporating nature into their sensory diet.

I’ve designed these Sensory Scavenger Hunts by season, and each includes activities from all 7 sensory domains.
