The Best Fidgets for Girls with ADHD
My girls love fidgets. Not every fidget will fulfill the same need in every girl with ADHD. My girls like the fidgets that help them feel calm and relaxed and that give them something to do.
Here are their favorite fidget catagories:
All of my girls love pop-its. Sure, they are trendy, but it also helps them have something to do with their hands so they aren’t bouncing in their seats during class or chewing their fingers or pencils.
My daughters love Among Us, so they really like this one.
My middle daughter of course likes the typical girly-shaped pop-its.
My youngest daughter likes animal-shaped pop-its.
My middle daughter has stated that the stretchy fidgets are what she finds the most helpful for calming down and relieving anxiety. Grab a set here.
A tangle fidget is nice for using in class because it doesn’t make a lot of sound and helps keep girls’ brains focused on the task at hand without distracting others. These are our favorites.
Not every girl with ADHD likes to chew, but my middle daughter has high chew needs. She is always chewing on something, so to prevent if from being her school supplies, I send her with these chew necklaces.
My older daughter likes the way the marble fidgets have a mesh texture and are able to be used without drawing attention to her. This set has so many fun colors.
