What is a 5-senses kit?

Our senses are really powerful & are easily activated when we are distressed and anxious. They are also powerful input sources to harness in managing our stress and anxiety through sensory grounding techniques. By putting together a kit with tools to soothe each of our 5 senses, we can actively work to bring ourselves down from high activation points and feel relaxed.
