A person receives 90% of information about the world through sight. Therefore, people deprived of the opportunity to see need care and protection. A sighted person can not only help a blind person in everyday life, but also significantly enrich his ideas about the world.

- - Natural flowers;
- - young shoots of trees;
- - lunch with fresh vegetables.
People experience the world not only through sight, but also through hearing, smell, touch and taste buds. Wanting to explain to the blind the riot of spring colors, all the beauty of awakening nature, turn to the four last channels of perception. It is important to approach the organization of this process in a comprehensive manner.
To provide the most complete experience and help to imagine the vibrant, lively, rich spring nature, invite a blind person to lunch. After he is seated at the table, include a selection of musical compositions dedicated to spring. These include Tchaikovsky's Waltz of Flowers, Vivaldi's Spring, Mozart's Arrival of Spring, Schumann's Spring Symphony, etc. These pieces of music are extremely expressive and perfectly convey the atmosphere of the spring carnival.
Bring fresh flowers indoors. Give preference to bouquets with a delicate, pleasant and fresh aroma. It will be great if you can find simple wildflowers for sale. The fragrant aroma of a recently collected bouquet will help the blind to imagine the riot of spring colors brighter and more accurately.
Give the guest one of the flowers. Bring a small young twig with sticky buds and young leaves. To get an idea of the shape, size and texture of any object, a blind person needs to touch it with his hands.
Serve fresh vegetables for lunch. Be sure to add fresh herbs (parsley, dill, sorrel, etc.). Thanks to agricultural technology, these products can be bought all year round. Avoid harsh tastes, too cloying seasonings. All dishes should be light in spring. The information received by the taste buds will complement the blind person's general impression of spring nature.
In conversation, compare spring colors with emotions. Build an associative array where each color will correspond to a certain feeling or emotion. Your blind interlocutor may have never seen the color pink, but he knows what tenderness is. With such a comprehensive emotional immersion, a blind person will create in his imagination a beautiful, bright, amazing image of spring.
