Childrens Bean Bag Chairs:
Remember how much you loved childrens bean bag chairs
when you were a kid? There are some good reasons for this.
The Ultimate In Proprioceptive Input
And "Crashing" Comfort
These chairs are the ultimate in comfort, enveloping
and hugging your whole body as you sink into them. The bean-filled
soft fabrics these children's bean bag chairs come in now are
even more comfortable than the plastic vinyl you may be used to.
Not only is the filling creating nice even deep
pressure input throughout your entire body, which is quite soothing,
but the plush fabrics are irresistibly soft (and fashionable)!
Deep pressure input is the name of the game... this
IS why these chairs are so important for kids with Sensory Processing
Disorder. They need this input to help calm their bodies. If
they are doing a sedentary task, such as watching a movie or reading, they
will still be receiving calming and soothing deep pressure throughout the
activity if they sit in a childrens bean bag chair.
Trust me, high energy kids and children with sensory
modulation difficulties need these bean bag chairs to help them sit still!
(I sure wish this is what they could sit in at their desks at school!)
The good news is, there are bean bag chairs for all
ages and sizes. The ones shown below are CHILDRENS bean bag chairs.
However, a more advanced bean bag chair, which also comes in much
bigger sizes for kids and adults is called a "foof bag". The fillers in
these chairs are even more durable and comfortable. They do tend to be
a little more expensive, but are WELL worth the money!!
Teachers... Parents... Therapists... Childrens
Chairs Are A Reasonably Inexpensive Way To Keep Your Children Calm!!
Put these kids bean bag chairs in every room you can think of where
they will be doing quiet, less physical activities. Put them into a
play tent or play hut where they go for a sensory controlled space to
relax. Or let them sleep with one on top of their lower back (If old
enough, as safety would be an issue for younger kids, we don't want
Additionally, children's bean bag chairs can be used
for "squishing" your kid...which they LOVE!! Have the child lay down,
put the bean bag chair (s) on top of them, then put as much even pressure
on your child as they want (pushing with your body or forearms on the bean
bag chair). It may sound strange, but, trust me, they will beg for more;
it is so calming for them!
Or, have them pretend they are a turtle and crawl
around on hands and knees with the bean bag chairs on top of them... a
great deep pressure and heavy work activity combined. See how long
they can go without it falling off! Put objects with weight in the bean
bag chair for even more pressure.
They are also a safe place to run and crash into!
Many children with Sensory Processing Disorder need to crash hard and
often. Let them, they need to! This is a wonderful and safe way to do
Use your imagination and children's bean bag chairs can
be a wonderful tool for your child's sensory needs!
