In this Demo, we present EPESonic [1], a movement-based installation prototype for researching design aspects relating to young children's meaning making through metaphorical action in a multimodal, digital setting. This prototype is the outcome of an embodied design approach that has been developed through co-design workshops with young children aged 2--7, their caretakers and museum professionals. With this prototype and its iterations, we have studied the relationship between pre-determined metaphorical action and fictional framing, digital feedback and playfulness. The goal of our prototype design is to provide methodological insights about embodied learning design for young children that integrate fictional narrative, play and digital feedback to support meaning making with metaphorical actions.
