Ocean Themed Sensory Resources for Kids

One can never have enough sensory resources on hand for children who need them. If you're like us, you carry them everywhere with you.

This spring I splurged on some fabulous ocean themed sensory fidgets for Sunshine. Some were given to her at her RTC, each day we were gone on our marine biology themed vacation. Others are for home. She has absolutely loved them.

Whether you're looking for ocean themed sensory resources for kids to use on vacation, throughout the summer, or in the classroom as you study the ocean, the sensory resources below are sure to be a hit!

Sunshine loves squishy stress toys to squeeze when she's feeling nervous and or anxious. This killer whale is the perfect sensory resource for her during those times.  I love the shape of it and how her hand fits around it.

There are few things that Sunshine loves more than sequins and stuffed animals. This sea turtle is the best of both worlds, and comes in her favorite colors. I love that this turtle is the perfect size to throw into a sensory bag on the go.

If you're child isn't into pink and purple, try this sequined shark stuffed animal. It's similar in size and is so soft and fun!

Ocean Themed Sensory Resources for Kids: Sand Filled Dolphin & Shark Fidgets


Sand Filled Dolphin & Shark Fidgets


When Bulldozer and Dinomite were little, these were their favorite type of fidgets. They collected so many sand filled animals including snakes and other reptiles. Sunshine enjoys them just as much. In all our years of owning this type of fidget, only two have ever broken.

Ocean Themed Sensory Resources for Kids: Blue Dolphin Chew Necklace


Blue Dolphin Chew Necklace


Both of my girls love dolphins and use chewies often. This is such a special chewie that showcases one of their passions and provides the sensory input they need. Necklace chewies are my favorite because they don't get lost as often and they double as jewelry, which the girls love.

Shark Tooth Chew Necklace


Bulldozer loves these chewies and has worn them often. They are on the soft side and won't work for aggressive chewers. But for Dinomite who's a HUGE shark fan, they do the job. I love that these shark chewy necklaces work for boys and girls alike! 

Ocean Themed Sensory Resources for Kids: Kinetic Sand Rainbow Castle

Some sensory resources are specific to certain living spaces. Kinetic sand is definitely one of these things. It can get messy, but Sunshine LOVES it. I must admit, I enjoy it too!

I just love these shells. They are so cute and provide such a fun sensory experience. In our house oceans are synonymous with mermaids so it only makes sense that we have these around. I love that the shells are so bright and colorful as well.

Floating Sea Creatures Liquid Timer


Bulldozer craves visual stimuli and loves liquid timers. He actually collects them now. I love that this one has an ocean theme to it and a really cool shape. This liquid timer does come in a variety of colors.

Visual timers can be used in so many ways while providing sensory input for kids. I don't know what we'd do without ours.

One of Bulldozer's favorite sensory experiences is watching waves and water. This is the perfect visual sensory resource for him! I love how real it looks.

Sunshine is big into pop its right now, which I love because they're easy to find and come in so many shapes. I couldn't get over how adorable this ray and sea turtle pop its were. I love the colors and the details.

Rainbow Dolphin and Blue Whale Pop Bubble Fidgets


To ensure variety and to add a girlie touch to pop it choices, I couldn't resist these dolphin and whale styles. The rainbow colors are beautiful. If your child doesn't like whales, it would be super easy to say that the tail is from a mermaid instead.

Ocean Themed Sensory Resources for Kids: Shark Water Wigglies


Shark Water Wigglies


The feel of these water wigglies is so soothing. I love how sharks and rays are inside. For kids who love to keep their hands busy, there is so much fun to be had with these.

The girls have both used therapy putty several times over the year to help strengthen muscles and more.  I love that this putty comes with charms the kids can look for within the putty. The charms are so cute!

The ocean theme is such a fun one when it comes to sensory resources and fidgets for kids. I know Sunshine is really enjoying them!
