Most children like to explore, play and learn — kids with sensory sensitivities are no exception! KidsQuest Children’s Museum (in Bellevue) has designed a low sensory afternoon for individuals or families with sensory sensitivities. Once per month, the museum offers children with a variety of sensory challenges the opportunity to engage in all of the museum activities, ranging from water play and arts and crafts to climbing structures and outdoor games. To foster a positive experience, the museum offers a “low sensory bag” that includes fidget toys, sunglasses and headphones that can used as needed. They have also created a social story to prepare children for what they will experience during their trip.
Low sensory afternoons occur on the 3rd Thursday of each month, from 3-5pm. This museum experience is free for the whole family. To learn more visit their website and to reserve tickets follow this link.
