Fidget Kits & Toys
A fidget is a small object (preferably one that fits in the child’s hand), that can be squeezed, pulled, or moved around as a child is sitting and listening e.g. at group times, listening to a story or waiting for a turn during a small group game
Anxious fidgeting occurs because the body has elevated levels of stress hormones, which are prepping your muscles for sudden exertion. … Boredom fidgeting such as drumming your fingers or pen spinning gives your brain something to focus on. This is soothing and reduces the amount of other, less directed, fidgeting.
