Harvest Theme October Sensory Calendar | The OT Toolbox

Harvest Theme October Sensory Calendar

This month's Occupational Therapy calendar explores the season's finest with a Harvest theme.  If you've missed this years' series of calendars, you can check out last month's calendar for activities that will keep your child occupied with sensory play and experiences well into this month.

Each month, I've been sharing creative and seasonal sensory experiences that address sensory needs based on each of the senses.  I try to come up with activities that can be modified to address multiple developmental areas such as fine motor skills, visual motor integration, gross motor coordination and balance, and functional skills.

This month's calendar is perfect for Sensory Awareness month!

October brings with it all things falling leaves and pumpkin spice everything, and it is definitely a sensory-filled month!  This month's activity calendar is full of sensory activities that will challenge the senses.  You will find activities based on all seven senses and are fun ways to involve the whole family in indoor and outdoor play.  Print out your free calendar, read through the activities and get ready to play!
