How to catch a rainbow Sensory walk | Loughborough 0-8yrs

Join our rainbow themed sensory walk at Melton Country Park. Our Play Leaders will guide you on a fun filled adventure around the different areas of the park. During the walk, we’ll be engaging each of our senses to connect with our surroundings; from discovering what plants we can smell, exploring how different natural materials feel and what animals we can hear. Sensory activities will be included throughout the walk, such as splish sploshing in the river, mud painting and feeding the ducks! Our Sensory walks are a great way for the family to explore the outdoors together whilst developing the senses and can even improve mood and reduce stress.

We recommend bringing wellies and waterproofs for this adventure for both children and adults! We may find some muddy puddles along the way!

This session we will be walking past a lake with ducks, the route is wheelchair accessible. The session will end with a small craft activity. The park also has a car park which can be found by using the address Melton country park visitor Centre and Café, Melton Mowbray,  LE13 1HP, There is also multiple blue badge spaces.
