Sensory Story – Thunderstorm. Using a Sensory Installation to engage children in Play

A Sensory Story based around the experience of a Thunderstorm.

This Sensory Story and experience is in 3 different parts which would have to be delivered at different times. Once all of the parts are done it might be nice to put it all together as a performance piece, either for an audience or for the experience.

The inspiration for this came from watching a thunderstorm and seeing the blue lightening lighting up the sky. I knew I wanted to make an experience that was using light and photography so this seemed like the perfect starting point.

This experience focuses around a sensory story in the first part encouraging discussions about feeling and fears around storms and loud noises, then the second part is about the retreat from the storm & building a calming den/space. Part 3 then focuses on the physicality of the storm, of recreating the lines of light in the sky and the loud noises.

I created a simpler sensory story to use with this workshop that would be understood by the toddlers which I have also recreated into postcard format to sell for people to try out the sensory story at home. This is available to purchase this through my Etsy store
