8 Exciting Fidgets for Adults

Last week, I wrote a featured blog discussing 5 different fidgets for children with special needs.  Within hours of publishing, the article gained a tremendous amount of attention due to the prevalence of fidgeting among children with and without special needs.  (After all, children will be children and they just have to move!)  As you probably already know, children are not the only ones who fidget!  Adults who have ADHD, autism, anxiety, high levels of stress and more, all often resort to fidgeting as a way to relax.  Some examples of adult fidgeting include clicking pens, bouncing feet/legs, tapping fingers, squirming, biting nails, etc.  If you are a fidgeter, or know someone who is, keep on reading to find a fidget designed with adult fidgeters in mind!
