6 Tips for using your PeaPod at home with your child. 

  1. AS A CALMER - most children should be able to crawl in and adjust the pod around them for that perfect cocooning calm

  2. DEFINING SPATIAL BOUNDARIES - Educators can use PeaPods during story time for those children who need extra help defining their space on the floor

  3. RHYTHMIC ROCKING - durable side handles make it easy for a therapist or parent to rock children gently from side to side. Great as a calming tool for meltdowns and before bed

  4. FOR ADDED SENSORY FEEL - have your child crawl into the PeaPod, then fill it up with plastic pool balls, packing materials or sensory textures.

  5. SUPPORT VESTIBULAR ACTIVITIES - place the PeaPod on a platform or net swing for added support and comfort during rocking and spinning activities.

  6. FOR GROUP ACTIVITIES - have each child positioned in a separate PeaPod, with pods spaced as needed for skill level. Have the children toss bean bags or balls around the group and/or towards a target.
