Is your child sensitive to or overwhelmed by different sensory inputs? Do they seek out sensory stimulation throughout the day? Has a therapist or other professional suggested your child would benefit from fidgets, weighted clothing, or other sensory soothing tools?

This book includes instructions for more than 30 projects. They range from simple tools that can be assembled in minutes to weekend endeavors where you can invest your time and love. The book also includes information about each sensory system and ways to modify the projects to meet individual needs.

Tomorrow is the Nest Fest at my friend's business in Fair Oaks. Kristin and I decided to launch our Kickstarter with the thought that I could advertise our campaign at the event. That and Facebook were really the sum total of our marketing plan.

Lo and behold, we've already reached our $1000 goal! Amazing. I have been so incredibly surprised and humbled to see who has supported us. Co-workers who I don't know especially well are stepping up with generous contributions, friends from Kristy's community of OTs are in the mix, both of our parents and other family members. So many friendly names on the Backer List.

But I'm almost more surprised and impressed to see how far the campaign has gone. An OT student in North Carolina bought the book and passed the campaign link around to classmates. A special ed teacher bought the book and left an encouraging note. The pledge that got us over $1000 was from a man in Alaska.

I can't believe how motivating and encouraging this entire experience has been.

We posted a stretch goal today--if we hit $1500 we'll be able to hire a professional copy editor to make the book just that much more perfect. It feels like we just might do it!
We'll be making calming bottles at the Nest Fest so guests can take home a sensory tool.
