What we used:
Bin- Rubbermaid Commercial 3Q24 CLE Polypropylene 15 Quart Roughtote Clear Non-Latching Storage Box, Rectangular, 13.3″ Width x 16.8″ Depth x 5.3″ Height, Clear
Crayola Fingerpaints Bold and Secondary Colors, 8-Count
Paint brushes- Melissa & Doug Large Paint Brush Set
I gathered snow off the porch from the chairs and table outside. I filled one of our plastic bins we use in sensory play. I got a paper plate out and put a few colors of finger paints on it. Then grabbed a few paint brushes.
What we did:
The kids could not wait to get in the snow. It had been snowing a few hours before I brought the snow bin inside and they had yet to go out in the snow. After watching it fall outside and not be able to touch it they could not wait to get their hands in this snow sensory bin.
The cold snow for touch and the bright colors of the paint are a great way to explore the senses of sight and touch.
This was a great way to let them play in the snow to start. I waited til the ground was covered to let them outside. Then we colored the snow some more a few other ways and tried the frozen bubbles.
As my tot kept saying it was a “fun snowy day”. Who knows when we will get snow again. This is the first time in a few years. It is always a treat for us to have some real snow play.
