the hand that rocks project


a non-profit organization dedicated

to promoting inclusive sensory

and emotional education 

what we do

  • we make beautiful rocks with oil pastels and glue
  • we display them, give them away and teach others how to make them
  • our rocks raise awareness that more sensory and emotional experiences need to be provided for young children
  • we sell rockits! to make it easy for you to get started making rocks and to raise funds for our events
  • Our events feature the best sensory and emotional activities for young children

why we do it

Mother and Baby on Floor
  • research proves that early childhood experiences matter greatly

  • By age 3 a child's brain has already reached 80% of its adult volume

  • multi-sensory and emotional experiences help connect the right neural pathways during early childhood

  • enhancing a child's sensory and emotional growth at this early stage is highly effective, helps them feel good, and reduces the need for more expensive interventions later on

  • Our organization's goal is to collaborate with others to create sensory and emotional awareness, activities, fun, reading, and relaxation to children and families everywhere

  • You can have fun, get creative, and help with that goal. MAKING ROCKS IS A CALMING SENSORY EXPERIENCE IN ITSELF and can work for any age.
