What is a Sensory Garden?
Sensory gardens are carefully designed areas which are devoted to engaging the senses. The purpose of a sensory garden is to trigger various neurological experiences, some of which are new, some familiar and often in exciting combinations. These sensory experiences can be highly impactful – you will become more receptive to the world around you in a positive manner. This allows children and adults to improve elements of their cognitive function, while remaining in a safe, relaxing environment.
Here are some ideas of things to include in a school sensory garden:
- Scented plants
- Edible plants
- Engraved seating
- Play sculptures
- Water features
You could also enhance the interactive aspect of your school sensory garden with outdoor musical instruments and drawing tools. For example:
- Tracing boards
Finally, don’t forget about the feeling you want to create for those moving around the sensory garden space. You can choose from some of these examples:
- Bark/Wood chip
- Outdoor play carpet
St. Patrick's elementary school - Miami Beach
Private residence - Miami Beach, Sunny Isles, N.M.B, Aventura, and Miami Shores
Children's Therapy - North Miami Beach and Aventura
