Multi-sensory free play sessions lasting 45min-1.5hrs.  All children receive a FREE gift and certificate

They are fun, interactive and engaging; they usually have these core elements…

  • Floor based, table top and wheel chair accessible – for whole body, hands on or non contact stimulation
  • A cosy zone with soft cushions, blankets and resources – perfect for deep pressure, floor play, intensive interaction with carers, free movement
  • A dark zone with either multi coloured lights or black light – ideal as visually high contrast, that can be a retreat, an place for exploration
  • Water based sensory experiences – ice, coloured water, various temperatures, even sea water!
  • ‘Messy’ sensory play – mark making with taste safe paint
  • ‘Non-Messy’ dry sensory experiences – grains, sands, loose parts, natural materials
  • Music and Lights

To PLAY of course!

Sensory Play is stimulating, regulating and brain building. That means it is exciting, helps children manage their feelings and helps language development and supports them to develop in all areas!

Parents and carers who play with their children help enhance this multi-sensory experience, help to build good emotional attachment, connection and relationships!

Babies, young children and children with additional needs.

ASD, ADHD, visual or hearing impairment, physical disability, learning difficulty, emotional and behavioural dificulties

Very little!

You need a venue that can hold your children, families and the resources – a large hall, community centre, leisure centre works well.

I come with everything I needs to set up and clean up – but I will need access to water and a drain!

Easy vehicle access to unloading resources

Children to wear old clothes (bring a change if possible!)

And a ‘have a go’ attitude from parents and carers.  It’s not always messy – but if gets a little bit messy, that’s ok!  

Not usually!

Resources are selected based on the needs of each group – so it may focus on lights and sound, or physical movement, or floor based activities. 

Resources may be loosely associated such as ‘under the sea’, or ‘up, up and away!’ 

Unless the booking is for a specific seasonal event or celebration like Halloween or Christmas. 

Children’s needs and interests are key – so tell me about your children and I will be sure to provide a fantastic sensory experience just for them!
