I feel like my mind never shuts off to what may help my students. So, while shopping at Home Depot, I spotted these bendy looking things. My kids and I all grabbed them and began twisting and bending. These little things are awesome! My next thought was how I could use them in my counseling program. I bought 4 at $1.00ish a piece to give them a try at school. Needless to say, I just went back and bought a 12 pack for $19.99. The kiddos at school love them and they really do the trick when someone is upset. They fit into a pocket so you can always have one on hand. The pack that I bought has various sizes. I highly recommend these cheap little calming tools!
