Normal, Ill. (HOI) – A McLean County gym for kids is making sure Easter is for everyone this week with sensory-friendly egg hunts.
We Rock the Spectrum promotes themselves as an inclusive space for all kids to play, including those with special needs.
Thursday they hosted their first egg hunt of the week to allow a sensory-friendly Easter celebration with a low-key bunny, snacks, craft and of course eggs!
Owner Rebecca Clark says she knows the important of these special events because her son is on the autism spectrum.
“That’s the idea behind the sensory-friendly event where it’s not too crazy, not too chaotic but fun and memorable for the families,” said Clark.
The egg hunts are done in small groups to allow kids the time and space they need for their search.
The next egg hunt is Saturday, April 20th from 9am- 12pm.
