Back to school time is here, and lunchbox notes are a tradition, like shopping for school supplies and taking sleepy first-day photos on the front porch!
Since not every child communicates love through words, the team over at Rice Krispies Treats has partnered with Autism Speaks to create sensory Love Notes that are specially designed with these children in mind.
Rice Krispies Treats first launched their Love Notes in 2017 by creating wrappers with a small space to write a note from home. Then in 2018, Rice Krispies made the Love Notes more inclusive by partnering with the National Federation of the Blind to offer parents both braille and audio Love Note options.
Rice Krispies’ latest Love Notes expansion is designed for children with autism and any child who may find comfort from the sensory input that comes from touching different textures.
The new Love Notes are “lightly reusable” stickers that come in packs of four, and they’re made to fit the writable space on the usual Love Notes packaging. Each sticker is shaped like a heart and features a variety of textures including silk, fleece, faux fur, satin, and velour.
Like the Braille Love Notes, the new sensory stickers are now free to order on the Rice Krispies Treats website. If your family would benefit from these stickers, head HERE, log in or register for a free Kellogg’s Family Rewards account and you should receive your set of touch-and-feel sensory ‘Love Notes’ in approximately 6-8 weeks (limit of one set of stickers per account).
