Sensory-Friendly Story Time

Thursday, April 13 at 9:30AM

Join us for sensory-friendly story time on the second Thursdays of January, February and March from 9:30-10AM! All are welcome and story time is free of charge.

What makes Sensory-Friendly Story Time special?

  • Story Time will take place before the store opens to the generl public.
  • Steps will be taken to keep animals calm, quiet, and happy, including covering the noisy birds' cages so that they sleep during story time.
  • Small objects, such as balls or small figurines, will be available for children to hold if they choose.
  • Visual distractions will be minimized.
  • There will be a clear schedule for story time with visual cues. Children will always be aware of what is coming next and how much longer story time will last.
  • As with all of our story times, this is a no judgement zone! We all have unique needs and ways of expressing ourselves, and we at Wild Rumpus welcome and celebrate those differences.

A big thank you to our friends at the Autism Society of Minnesota (AuSM) and Upstream Arts, who advised in the planning of the Sensory-Friendly Story Times.
