Our song 'Going for a Walk' is designed to describe an everyday activity as experienced by individual clients. In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it's easy to overlook the rich multisensory experiences that occur in a seemingly ordinary activity. In this blog post, we'll explore how 'Going for a Walk' inspired our summer resource, a sensory walk bingo card, a tool designed to elevate the experience of a leisurely walk into a multisensory adventure.
The 'Going for a Walk' sensory walk bingo card has been crafted to amplify the experience of a walk in nature. This unique card is not just a game, but a gateway to exploring the world with a heightened awareness of our senses. Each square on the card prompts participants to engage with, explore, relate and respond to their surroundings in novel and enriching ways. See the item in one of the squares? Cross it off your bingo card. Want to enjoy the summer bingo card more than once? Laminate it and then write on it with a whiteboard marker!
Each step becomes an opportunity to appreciate the world around us, to engage our senses, and to reconnect with our environment. So, let's lace up our shoes, press play on the song on Spotify, and immerse yourself in your environment this summer!
