In August 2021, as we emerged from lockdown, Families United began visiting The Puddle Project. We explored a newly opened site with the friendliest of welcomes. You can check out one of our early visits here. Two years later, The Puddle Team continues to surpass our expectations.
When families proposed ideas to make The Puddle Project more sensory-friendly for our children and young people seeking sensory experiences. The Puddle took action, turning those ideas into reality. The pathways were enhanced with guide ropes and posts, the car park was upgraded with tarmac, and pathways were made wheelchair-accessible. Goats came for a year and then found a new home, but the ducks, chickens, guinea pigs, rabbit, and huge fish remain. There is mini-crazy golf, a pizza oven, BBQ, and we’ve enjoyed pancakes, hotdogs, pizza, and more. Children fish, ramble, climb, toast marshmallows, craft, and engage in various activities.
Each year, Christmas becomes more magical, offering exclusive sessions for our families to thoroughly enjoy the Santa experience in a supportive calm environment, perfect for our sensory children and young people. Anything is possible at The Puddle Project!
The launch of a new dedicated platform for Sensory Equipment marks a new venture from The Puddle Project, who we have partnered with. Our families inspired the website, which will benefit the wider sensory community. Explore sensory information, sensory equipment, and sensory toys. We’re thrilled to be part of this partnership!
