Hey all,

Sorry it's another Advent Calendar question...
I am looking for some ideas and inspiration!

A bit of a back story DS(9) has autism and is non verbal and I am looking for some ideas what to put in his home made advent calendar..

He loves Sensory toys - ones that make sounds, lights up , textures ...he can chew etc . Animals ( but he has lots already and I am trying to cut back on them if possible) and salt and vinegar crisps!

He hates sweets, chocolate and long books ( has to be literally 5ish pages to keep him interested)

Also he puts EVERYTHING in his mouth so it can't be too small 😩

Has anyone got any ideas??! What did you put in your child's advent calendars?

Oh and I have tried picture ones before and they didn't end well.. at all.

I forgot to say I am really struggling this year .. I completely forgot what we used in previous years as last year we tried the picture calendar and it was a disaster confusedblushwine

Fidget spinner
Fidget cube
Slime??? Would he put that in his mouth?
Moon ball
Mini pack of salt and vinegar Pringles
Pack of salt and shake crisps along with a little sachet of vinegar to make his own

Thankyou forgot about that shop I will have a look now smile

Unfortunately he already has lots of fidget spinners and a cube but hasn't taken any notice of them and he will put the slime in his mouth 😩

But I love the idea of him making his own crisps using the vinegar, Thankyou! :D

Pringles have come out with a advent calendar

Or if it's just salt and vinegar ones he likes you could make your own.
