Places to Play For Those With Sensory Sensitivity In Buffalo
This weekend was dreary, cold and rainy. We were trying to figure out something fun to do inside, so my boyfriend and I brought his kids to Skyzone. I had never been there before, and everyone had a blast! One cool thing I noticed was a sign that said they offered "Sensory Sunday" for kids with sensory sensitivity. The lights are dimmed and music is lowered or turned off.
Then this morning, I saw on the news that Chuck E. Cheese also offered "Sensory Sensitive Sundays", so that kids affected by sensory issues can have the same amount of fun!
I asked you for other places that offered these types of special hours or days for families. Here are a few you mentioned!
Thanks to Samantha from North Boston for letting us know about this one!
