Are you looking for ways to add a little more excitement and activity to your home? Maybe you’re looking for ways to stimulate your senses in order to increase your overall well-being. No matter what the reason, we’ve got you covered with some ideas for sensory rooms that will leave you feeling refreshed, invigorated, and excited! From light and sound therapy to aromatherapy and massage, there’s something here for everyone. So why not give one or more of these rooms a try today?
What is a Sensory Room?
Sensory rooms are similar to a playroom in that they take your little ones not only out of their ordinary routine, but also offer them fun activities and experiences within their bedroom.
Unlike a conventional playroom though, sensory rooms feature specific decor with inclusions for each activity or offering. This way, it’s simple enough for me to include the items I need without having quite as much set-up work associated at first glance alone.
Does Your Child Need a Sensory Room?
If your child has sensory issues that are causing you trouble, no doubt they’ll benefit from a time outside their room to play and experience something new. It’s lovely if this “out of the classroom” time is offered in a calming atmosphere but if not then why not create it anyways? Creating an environment within which children can embrace the happiness of exploring chemicals and plantbased smells needn’t be stressful or overwhelming.
Awesome Sensory Room Ideas
Each sensory room I share above is carefully chosen from throughout my experiences with over a decade of sensory work. The rooms are grouped roughly in order by category as one entry may relate to another depending on the resources you choose, or what materials you’re able to find or borrow for free at no cost.
Sensory Room Equipment & Furniture
Sensory rooms are made up of so many variables and I could easily fill this entire blog post with information regarding the decorating choices or materials used to create each. If you’re new to sensory room making though, it can seem slightly overwhelming at first because there’s much out there on display online but is it practical?
To ease your decision-making process what if we broke the pieces down into their most influential parts in DIY projects specifically.
Sensory Toys and Fidgets
Sensory Toys, toys which instantly and intentionally stimulate someone’s senses may be the most expensive aspect of a sensory room once you factor in all of them. Their affordability though is totally worth it to me as I mentioned above how incredibly useful each individual toy can be for educating youngsters about their own unique sense environment wherever ever they’re found!
Overall, I’m very happy with what The Scented Adventures has and over the past few months I’ve closely examined many of their offerings in finding those ones that appeal to my sensory system the most. It’s clear to me too now though just how much we can all benefit from taking a more naturalistic approach when it comes down to making passionate connections within our community as well as bringing people together through smells!
