This pop-up tent is ideal for kids who respond to a safe sensory space. This pop-up tent offers a private and secluded space for someone suffering from sensory overload or just in need of some me-time. Ideal for your child with autism. It is possible for two kids to play as desired.
This pop-up tent acts as a pop-up shelter offering a calming, safe sensory space for children to relax, unwind or explore. The lightweight pop-up tent can be used anywhere on soft surfaces.
It takes seconds to put up and quickly folds down. Perfect as a relaxing, quiet, or calm zone, away from noise and distractions for children to chill out, the pop-up tent can also be used as a dark den with lighted objects and with UV equipment for sensory exploration.
The pop-up tent comes with hook and loop fastener tape in each corner to hang things for added stimulation. It provides a safe and enclosed space with a window on the side for observation or ties up the front flap for an open doorway.
Comes in a storage bag. To be used inside or on soft surfaces to avoid wear & tear.
Explore the wonderful possibilities of a light-controlled sensory environment when you introduce a Sensory Tent into your learning space or home.
Excellent when used for sensory light and colour therapy, as the various tent flaps allow adjustment of the light levels in the tent dependent on the needs of the individual.
Combining colour and light therapies activates a person’s neuro-stimuli of proprioception (the awareness of where your body is in space) with their vestibular system (the sense of balance) enabling the brain to enhance itself and develop its cognitive ability.
Sensory lighting works as a complementary therapy, acting as a visual aide that benefits both health and behaviors in children and adults.
Children’s moods in particular are strongly affected by lighting – for some it provides a calming, soothing effect, while for others it acts as a stimulant.
Certain light levels and colours can be beneficial and the ability to control visual stimuli within the space is important.
The Sensory Tent is also great for general dramatic role play, drama, scientific investigation and creative play - truly a versatile and open ended learning resource.
