Snow Much Fun!

child playing in sensory binJanuary has been quite snowy indeed! Older kids seem to love this time of year, with all the sledding, skating and snowball fighting. But what about the tiniest of tots in your family? When snow reaches well above your sweet baby’s head, try this simple indoor snow activity sure to produce lots of smiles.

Here is what you will need:

  • A big tub or container
  • A couple of towels for the floor
  • Some scoops, ladles or spoons
  • Toys–think dinosaurs, cars and trucks, sand or play toys. If your child is old enough, you can even add SPRINKLES. (See photo.)

Get a clean scoop of snow from outside, and place it in the tub or container. Add the toys or sprinkles to the snow, and let the fun begin!

Not only is this a fun activity, but it also encourages cognitive development when your little one’s senses are stimulated.
