Under the Sea | Loughborough 5-8yrs

Join us for a family fun session exploring what’s to discover under the sea! There will be a range of themed sensory activities for all the family; from beach themed dancing to sandy sensory bottles and our own rockpool full of friendly sea creatures! Through sensory stories, games and crafts, we'll be engaging our senses and imagination to explore under the sea and support your child to develop communication and play skills.

Our Summer sessions for children aged 5-8yrs are part of Leicestershire County Council’s Holiday Activities and Food (HAF) Programme. This means that, alongside our fun sensory activities, families will be provided with a free lunch during the day.

Our under the sea themed sessions will take place on 27 July & 24 August. These will be the same the session, so we’d recommend just attending one session, on the date that suits you best.

Session Schedule
  • 10.30-12.00 | Sensory Activities
  • 12.00-12.40 | Lunch
