Water play is a sensory experience that can include all children. This however can be dangerous for some ages so we have to break the activity into age groups. Younger children will have low levels of water outdoors that will be supervised. This teaches the children on how water feels- the children can also splash the water with the other children. The older children can go to bigger areas such as excursions to ponds or picking up rocks out of the water. This will also be supervised.
This outdoor area is a play area that includes everyone, including children with disabilities. This picture shows a happy environment where children feel happy, secure and are accepted. We can learn a lot from this and create areas that are inclusive and accepting to all children.
I would like to ideally have a sandpit that can have a side of the sand pit underneath with chairs and a small space for children with wheelchairs to sit and play with the sand- this is is a way to include everyone in an important sensory experience.
