Tis the Season for Sensory Friendly Holiday Events

Tis the season and it wouldn't be a great holiday event without shopping at Oriental Trading!!!! I have been a really busy elf planning and prepping for my Non-Profit Organization D3 Sports & Recreation Inc.'s 2nd Annual Holiday event!!!!!

Last year was a such a success, and we are sure that this year will be even better!!!!!!!

This year Monsignor Scanlan High School has graciously donated their Cafeteria to host our 2nd Annual Sensory Holiday Event! 

We will have some fun activities that we got from Oriental Trading. 

The children will be greeted at the door and given a number an activity sheet. 

Once they are all checked in everyone can then head on in to their first activity.  There will be four stations, there is no particular order but they will receive a sticker after each activity is completed. 
Sensory Station

At our sensory station, children will get to search for these adorable Christmas finger puppets assortment, through bins filled with rice. 
Holiday Tree Ornament Station

Everyone loves to decorate their tree, why not decorate it with a handmade ornament made by their loved one.  At the Holiday tree ornament station.  Children will get to create some cute little Elf Christmas ornaments.

There will be some games along the way as well!  Kids and their families will have a chance to feed Santa some cookies with the Santa’s Cookies Bean Bag Toss.  They can toss some rings on the Inflatable Elf Hat Ring Toss, and they can try their luck with the Inflatable Reindeer Antler Ring Toss Game   

After they have completed the activities and played some games.  One of Santa's helpers will call their number and they get a chance to meet the Big Guy in the Red Suit Santa!!!!! Here they will get to tell Santa just what they want for Christmas and take a picture to take home. 

Before they head on out of Santa's special space they will let one of the helpers know that they are all done!  The helper will then hand them an awesome Christmas book The Magical Tale of Santa Dust, A Christmas Tradition donated and written by Patricia Cardello and Illustrated by Manuela Sorlani,  so that they can read at home with their family.
