Shaving Cream

My bird is a sensory seeker. She loves feeling things and really getting the sensation of feelings things. She craves that input. Today she played with some shaving cream. I put down one of those plastic mats that we used to “catch” foods that were thrown off of her high chair, then I grabbed a puzzle and sprayed shaving cream all over her hands and the puzzle. Then, I let her go to work. Because the feelings are so intense for her, she tends to lose language when she’s engaging in something tactile. That’s okay for now. I want her to get the input she needs now, so she can focus better later.
