Joell Dunlap ask me the other day, and I am passing it on to our Dream Team:
If money wasn't an issue- what elements would be in a sensory garden? Edible plants, filtered light, fruit trees- what else? Water Element of course (Joell Dunlap)
Check our FB Extreme Mountain Trail Park Tilburgs https://www.facebook.com/extremetrailtilburgs/
Rain bells, a sensory path made of different textures (grass, pebbles, sand), something bouncy, large wooden instruments- hanging chimes or whatever, a big hour glass with sand in that you can turn, a star map made of stones bobbles on the floor, water you can channel and divert...
A smell- sensory parc or wood: herbs like Thyme, Romaine, Lavender, Basil, all the healing plants that smell, and selling trees like Cypress. Music from natural instruments: Dijjiridoo (Australian native instrument), drums etc.
Julian and Julia:
Foam bath and foam slides, some slime to stick your hands in or even bath in. A very smooth path with thin layers of warm good smelling oil on it where you can walk/slide on and have the opportunity to even poor warm oil on your legs etc. Ice cube buckets- to chew on to stick your hands/feet in on a hot day, listen to them explode etc. something with wind, like a huge people high fan that blows a soft nice smelling wind at your whole body- you can choose the small and temperature of course!
Bird feeders and butterfly plants and whatever else you can put to attract critters.
You can ask kiddos to help building an insect hotel https://www.edenproject.com/learn/for-everyone/how-to-build-an-insect-home
