Christmas comes with a variety of sights, smells, sounds, and social interactions that can be pleasant for some and overstimulating for others.
But here are some things I think my sensory kids would really like to visit.
(1) A swinging Christmas
Racho Siempre Verde Christmas Tree Farm in the San Francisco Bay area brings out the kid in all of us and focuses on nature's delights.
They have free activities that include GIANT swings from their giant trees, straw bale forts to explore, a giant xylophone to play up on the hill, and all the roasted marshmallows you can make and eat by the fire.
You can make your own wreath using their array of supplies and materials from nature for $7-$10.
Oh, and you can buy a Christmas tree.

(2) A singing Christmas
Brown's Christmas in Mason Michigan features a musical light show set to music that can be enjoyed with the car radio. This year's display features a special tribute to the Michigan State University Spartans.
