What's a "Fidget" Quilt?? These small lap quilts provide sensory stimulation and activity for people of varying ages and needs, such as dementia, autism or ADHD. They keep young children busy and help them to discover the world during some fun "tummy time?" They can provide engaging purposeful activity for restlessness while relieving stress, alleviating boredom and stimulating the senses. The various textures and built in features help to strengthen hands and keep them mobile while performing familiar activities like dressing skills. Widely used, fidget quilts can be expensive to purchase, but we can make them from scraps, found objects, imagination and simple sewing skills. Customize a fidget quilt as a gift for a loved one or make them for a generous donation to community agencies and care facilities. You can call them fidget quilts, busy blankets, sensory mats or whatever - just call them fun to make and use!
