Sensory-rich activities: connecting people with the outdoors
We have compiled a collection of activities, games and exercises that are all based around sound.
You will learn how to ‘tune in’ to your natural environment and discover a whole new world of sound. These ideas are suitable for everyone and can be adapted to suit any environment. You can turn a simple walk around your garden into a sound adventure.
- creating a sound hunt
- going on a sound walk
- guidance on how to record and illustrate a soundscape
- keeping a sound journal
These activities can be done as a family, as part of a school group, a memory cafe group or one on one. We have also provided you with a comprehensive list of sound words for you to use as inspiration or as part of a sound game.
