Here are a selection of tutorials for various types of sensory toys with explicit autumn themes. These crafts are easy to do for seniors, kids, and whole families and use a variety of common and inexpensive base materials including fresh fall materials such as leaves, twigs, acorns, autumn berries, nuts, and pinecones that can be gathered in outside excursions for further exercise.
In addition to acting as normal fall decor, sensory toys can be used as stress relief toys for adults, hand therapy for those with arthritis or other hand strength or dexterity issues, or sensory play which is especially good for kids, people confined to beds, or those in later stages of dementia & Alzheimer's.
