Regulating emotions through sensory-based activities


This resource pack, has been created to give the facilitator activities to help the child’s nervous system regulate – through sensory-based movements.  They are ideal for those children that need regular movement breaks throughout the day, to prevent their nervous system becoming overwhelmed.  The sensory-based calming activity cards are focused on providing the child with deep pressure and/or proprioceptive input, to regulate and ground the child again.

How to use the pack:

  • Brain-break

If the child is becoming dysregulated and needing sensory input to regulate them, simply provide them with a keyring with a selection of these activities.  They may need a combination of these and the organising cards – as they could start with a focused activity and then go to a calming one.

  • Sensory-based Intervention

Simply, print them off – laminate and use them with Velcro to form a lesson plan, or on a keyring for individual children.  You will also need access to the Organising and Alerting Activity Cards.

The lesson structure:

  • Beginning:  2 x Alerting Activity Cards
  • Middle: 2 x Organising Activity Cards
  • End: 1 x Calming Activity Card


  • To regulate sensory overwhelm
  • To prevent sensory overwhelm
