Funsense loves to use all sorts of resources and techniques to stimulate the senses and ultimately help participants enjoy their time with us.
We use a mixture of lighting, sound and imagery to create our 'space' and then within that, a mixture of role play, puppets, tactile objects...If it feels good we do it!
A lot of the people who take part in our sessions like to mouth objects and be very tactile. We are ok with this and we are not precious about our props and materials. With the help of staff and supporters we can help participants enjoy our resources safely.
The kinds of resources we like to use include:
sand, pebbles and shells
gauzes and silks
cornflour and water mix
smooth branches and wood
easy to use garden tools
