How to make a sensory garden box for a child who is visually impaired

Scarlett in the garden

With Spring in full swing and the sun beginning to peep from behind the clouds Easter is a perfect time to get out into the garden and start planting. There are many benefits to gardening for a child who is visually impaired. It can be a great way of introducing new sensory experiences and a very holistic way of learning about nature.

Gardens are a sensory delight but much of the emphasis can be placed on the visual aspects, so I wanted to help create a small garden box for Scarlett to explore which she could appreciate using her other senses.
