Snowflake Sensory Play!
Snow day snowflake sensory play for a no-school day!Winter and snowflake sensory play ideas are so much fun! It was a very snowy day here, coming down continuously most of the late morning, afternoon and early evening! I thought I would set up some fun snowflake sensory play. Simple and quick ideas are great for any day play! Enjoy these ideas all winter long. Some of our favorite snowflake play is with our easy homemade snowflake slime, with our baking soda science snowflake activity, or with easy snowflake oobleck science sensory play! Winter days can be long, but these winter activities will make them fun!
Snowflake Sensory Play Bin
I used fake snow from the craft store as a filler with a piece of snowflake printed scrap-book paper underneath it all. We have many favorite sensory bin fillers to choose from too! I had lots of different snowflakes buried in the fill. Sequins, buttons, and gems all snowflake shaped. I added two mason jars to fill and dump with as well and a soft snowflake ornament. I showed him the coffee filter snowflakes I was hoping to show him how to make and he told me I should put them in the bin too!
Snowflake Sensory JarFirst off I have to give total credit to Molly Moo and her snow globes. She did a much better job and is much craftier than I am! Go check out what she did and you will have much better luck. However, if you have a preschool boy with too much energy and a short attention span, this might work for you! I took a mason jar and super glued a tree and a reindeer onto the lid of the jar and then glued some fake snow over my sloppy glueing! Liam filled the jar with water and dumped way to much glitter into it. We screwed the lid and ring on tightly and shook it. He was pleased and off to the next adventure. They are pretty cute and perfect for my kiddo anyway!
Coffee Filter SnowflakesThe filters are so easy and fun to cut. I don’t think I have ever had the knack for snowflake cutting down, but now even I can make pretty snowflakes quickly. Hopefully, he will give it a try. I set out a folded and marked snowflake for him to try.
You might ask, what did he do the rest of the day?
His own sensory play!
