Sensory Friendly Saturday – Making Sense of Scents

Saturday, September 12

On the second Saturday of every month, Miami Children’s Museum offers a sensory friendly experience for children with disabilities and their families. This month, get ready to Make Sense of Scents!

Learn the benefits of smells this month with a fun painting project, a scented memory game, and a yummy cloud dough sensory bin. Watch a cooking demonstration to create sensory moments in the kitchen, and enjoy a story by our Theater Troupe.

Even at home, our goal is to provide your child with the opportunity to engage in social interactions and improve their processing and regulation of sensory input to optimize their understanding of and participation in natural environments. Check out Museum at Home and our social media channels for a day filled with sensory activities!
