Winter Sensory Activities
- Snowy Sensory Bottle: take a clear bottle and fill it with cotton balls, blue glitter, white glitter, white sequins. Secure lid tightly and shake.
- Snowy Sensory Bin: this one is edible! Find a container appropriately sized for sensory play and fill it with potato flakes (typically found in the soup aisle of most grocery stores, look for instant potatoes). Add in whatever toys you like.
- Snowflakes: pre-cut some q-tips to create snowflakes. Attach a clear piece of contact paper to a table or window with the sticky side facing towards you. Press the cut q-tips into the shape of a snowflake. You can layer another piece of clear contact paper on top of the snowflakes to create a long-lasting art project.
- Cotton Ball Snowmen: you’ll need construction paper cut into snowmen features (eyes, nose, arms), cotton balls, and glue. Begin by allowing the children to glue cotton balls onto a piece of paper in the shape of a snowman. After the snowman is made, allow the children to add whatever features they’d like to their snowman.
