Weighted Blankets for Schools

Many of our customers are teachers who have found that using weighted blankets in their classrooms can help improve:

• Children’s focus and “time-on-seat” in the classroom;
• Their transitions between activities;
• Reduce the extent and intensity of meltdown episodes; and
• For the little ones: improve the quality of their rest during nap time.

What type of weighted blankets can schools find useful?

By and large, our school customers tell us that they use weighted lap blankets and the smaller travel blankets in the classroom.

Here are the three reasons that Calming Moments weighted blankets are safe and practical for daily use by children in the classroom.


Reason #1: They are safe

  • Our Mandurah, WA factory specialises in making weighted blankets specifically for children. You can buy our weighted blankets in a number of different weights from the 1,5kg travel blanket up to 12 kg in 0,5kg increments. That way you don’t ever run the risk of having a child injured – or worse – because their weighted blanket was too heavy.

Reason #2: They are practical

  • All our weighted blankets are machine-washable on gentle cycle. Because you shouldn’t have to spend your time hand-washing when mess happens.
  • Plus we have easy-clean vinyl weighted lap blankets available.

Reason #3: We have 8 different sizes to choose from

  • Our weighted blankets for children range from small lap blankets (great for helping concentration) to travel blankets, toddler beds, singles, king singles, doubles, queen and king size.

All Calming Moments’ premium weighted blankets and quilt inserts are manufactured to our high quality standards in Western Australia. They are all certified Australian-made.

We make each blanket individually. That means you can choose the fabric type and colour you love best.

  • Plus, we can make your weighted blanket completely unique by embroidering your name on it.
  • Our unique Calming 2-year guarantee covers every blanket. This means that we will repair or replace your weighted blanket for free in the unlikely event that the stitching breaks. No other weighted blanket offers this guarantee.


But don’t just take our word for it. Here are some of the reviews from our wonderful customers. Please also look on our Testimonials page.

The blankets are great quality and are exactly as described online. The names embroidered add a nice personal touch. The kids love them and haven’t been to bed a night without them since they arrived. Very quick postage and great communication with the seller as well. Thank you.
