HOLIDAY CHILD'S PLAY
SIT TIGHT WEIGHTED LAP PAD
The Sit Tight Weighted Lap Pad helps children and adults improve their focus, attention span, and stay seated longer. The gentle pressure of the Sit Tight helps the user stay calm and focused. It is smaller than a weighted blanket and designed to stay on the lap while seated with use of its waist strap, that securely fastens around the back. The lap pad provides deep touch to the skin which is an effective tool to help your child stay in their seat and focus on their work whether it is circle time, home/school work, or mealtimes. To use, place the Sit Tight on the lap during meal time, sit and listen times, or resting times at home or at school. It features a strap that fastens around the waist to help ensure it will stay put while a child is seated. The strap is closed by a buckle and the size of the strap is adjustable. Children can also carry the Sit Tight across the room when a break is needed. The Sit Tight provides a little extra weight when a child takes a walking break. This can help improve their focus when they return to sit and work. Available in small, medium, and large.
