Good activities for special needs children would be sensory stimulating to them in either sight, sound or taste. There's many activities that you can do with them and that would depend on their likes and dislikes.
For example, if they seem to be always moving they might want to go to a playground, swimming or splash around in a small pool. (see link for Top ten summer activities for kids with special needs below)
If they are on the quiet calm side than blowing bubbles might interest them. There are children that still enjoy blowing bubbles up into their teens.. (See link for Fun bubble blowing toys below)
If your special needs child is able: A fun tasting activity would be to have them cover their eyes or use a blind-fold and have them guess the tastes of different foods, you can use fruits or vegetables or their favorite food vs the not so favorite food.
How about an easy craft? For crafts choose simple ideas that have less than 3 steps such as twisting colorful pipe cleaners together to make something. Very easy to do if the project is less than 3 steps. (See link for pipe cleaner crafts below).
