We finally got a decent decent snow-fall Friday, but but by today the temps were mild again, and it was raining. The snow was disappearing before our eyes, so I decided to make a snow sensory bin, to play with inside, so we could enjoy the white stuff before it was gone again.
This is such a great way to play in the snow when you can’t get outside. It’s nice to explore the properties of snow in the comforts of your own home too! The kids just wouldn’t get to explore it in this way if we were outside, all bundled up, with frozen fingers and toes.
Hand out some mittens, and let the fun begin.
Other than a few puddles on the table cloth, it’s a really neat and clean activity. Just keep a small towel handy, and every once in a while wipe up any melting snow on the table cloth. Clean up is a snap too. Just rinse off the tools and dishes, open the door, and toss the snow back outside.
What a great way to put in a rainy morning!
