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
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.
